They Soon Forgot the Cosmonaut

By Peter Joseph Adams

He is an island insignificant
Amidst a sea magnificent
To be passed over by the eye

While the world storms and quakes
All alone he floats and waits
The man above the sky

One cannot follow
A heart long hollow
For nothing’s there to lead

His simple crime
Was wishing time
Would move another speed

But the world passed right by
Time stays content to fly
It will never postpone

And our Cosmonaut
The world forgot
So he floats away, alone.
