Dear Human

Forgive me for writing and not showing my face

but in front of your beauty my looks have to hide

so don't even ask about this far away place

just honor that blue sphere with dignity and pride.

From all this distance it seems to be so clean

you must be treating it with a loving care

I wish I could admire more of that green

but sun won't let me with all of its glare.

With beauty of your kind you must enjoy

some fabulous harmony with each global brother

nothing such between you that could annoy

just love and compassion for one another.

The year is nineteen and fifty eight

none of later years is showing so far

we are all cheering, expecting only great

in the future of beings so smart as you are.

I wish I could see your world a little closer

to enjoy that idyll of a cosmic paradise

but we have not invented yet a flying saucer

to admire that peace with our own eyes.

I would write some more but now I have to die

life is very short and uninteresting here

please, my human friend, don't you cry

your face looks so beautiful without a tear.

      Ryan---Well, I had fun writing it. Since I don't take myself too seriously, I am not sparing the mankind either while applying a little satire here and there in my poetry and articles.

      Someone looking at us "from afar" (like an E.T.) could easily idolize our species---but we know better, don't we?

      MizBejabbers---The poem was meant to be satirical; mankind being praised by someone who didn't know us enough, assuming that we "must" be a super-race because of all perfect conditions for it.

      This would be very inspiring in 1958, but we know the truth today, don't we? You really do justice to poetry, my friend.

      What a clever and fun poem. I really liked the flow and enjoyed this. I loved that movie as a kid as well. Great job.
