Neil Armstrong Ascends One Last Time Posted at 3:27 PM by Rico Simpkins

“Nine summers ago, I went for a visit,

To see if the moon was green cheese.

When we arrived, people on earth asked: “Is it?”

We answered: “No cheese, no bees, no trees.”

There were rocks and hills and a remarkable view

Of the beautiful earth that you know,

It’s a nice place to visit, and I’m certain that you

will enjoy it when you go.”

Neil Armstrong (1930-2012),

written 1978 for the pleasure of children

 

Thanks for all you did, Mr. Armstrong — both on earth and above it.
