To Columbia7: A Tribute

To Columbia7: A Tribute

For you, the valiant heirs of Prometheus,

Of Liebnitz, Kepler, and Copernicus,

We mourn our lose but celebrate the cause

That cost the ultimate measure of your

Devotion, proclaimed in blazing glory,

And sealed your rendezvous with Destiny.

In votive gratitude and homage pledge

To keep your torch aflame and let endure

Ages of unbegot posterity.

So every fragment that your ship had strewn

Would our ambitions amply leverage

And claim your vintage courage as our own:

All wholesome sacrifice to Liberty

The ransom price for immortality!
