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.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
