Heroes


A hero's strength one cannot compare,
When two pilots flying, fell from the air,
Their will renewed, suppressing fear,
Bounding down, the Hudson River near.

Somewhere in their spirit strong,
Strength, not weakness, when all went wrong.
Peace and calm, hold back their fear,
A crippled plane, sudden death so near.

All of their strength came to bear,
Dedicated pilots of US Air,
A water landing, hard to face,
Landed safely, resting in place.

Seemingly disastrous, in a hopeless way,
Instinct to survive, no one dies today.
With courage, fear never taking hold,
Guided by angels, their strength untold.
Strength, honor, courage and respect,
Hundreds of lives saved, from a watery death.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
