Idealized tribute.
 



Columbia 

. 

This bright morning star, 

this plume of smoke and fire 

that falls, 

was our love, 

the finger of God, 

pointing out our destiny and yours. 

. 

Do not grieve long, 

sweet loved ones, 

but carry on. 

For we have left our home 

for a far better home, 

and can only live now within your hearts. 

. 

Some day, when you infant dreamers 

will have reached the stars, pause; 

look back through the eon leaning years 

and you will see seven phantom shadows nod, 

then, with unfaltering steps, retire. 

~ Will
