Letter from E.T.: a Poem
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.
