ARMSTRONG COLLINS AND ALDRIN

Others have trodden the path
Challenged the fears, resolved the doubts.
Set up the markers,
Taken their meed of praise.
And some have died.
They are not unknown.

But these will be remembered.

Having no doubts
They have followed the path,
Passed beyond the markers;
And, come to the threshold
Have flung wide the door
And entered their kingdom.

They have returned,
The stars as a gift.
Let us be grateful.
Let us be proud.
Above all let us be worthy.

But these will be remembered.

Donald Ian McGregor 1908 – 1985
