The only dream that Neil had
Was to fly on self-made wings
To realize the dream of man
Become the king of kings
To have a private world alone
Where no one else could be
Entered through a secret door
And he would have the key

He worked alone till night and day
Became just dark and light
The outside world a distant haze
With two-dimensio n a l sight
They thought that Neil was off his head
And laughed so he could hear
But Neil could smile at what they said
His arete was near
Report as inappropriate
He built his wings like those of old
With petals, strings and wheels
The universe he'd soon enfold
With stardust on his heels
He'd fly across Laurentia
And touch its mountain peaks
Atlantis he would soar above
And find what memory seeks

From back to front, DaVinci's works
By candlelight he read
From dead alas the reason why
Broad Icarus was dead
With geometric line and curve
These plans began to shape
A pair of wings that soon would serve
To accomplish Neil's escape
Report as inappropriate
Silent now the people watched
And no one laughed or spoke
A memory in their souls was touched
T'was no longer just a joke
And through their midst a path was cleared
For Neil a golden way
The cliff top and his dream he neared
No longer far away

He stood alone with wings unfurled
And watched the rising sun
Apollo and another world
He'd soon have lost or won
He spread his wings and felt them lift
Among the Gods he'd be
By silent lips his soul was kissed
And Neil at last was free
