Water on the Moon
Entering this life in the 1930’s
World Wars filled her questioning youth.
Not worried about being a popular girl,
Hildred strived for change through truth.
A single mother (two sons), and a teacher,
She taught the good life, and fairness for all,
Followed her retirement dream by moving;
Boston, beckoned, the peace activist’s call.
Hildred wore a political button each day,
Not to advertise her own points of view;
Rather she hoped to expose all humanity,
To thoughts and discoveries brand new.
On Monday evening, at five P.M.,
Hildred, slipped the boundaries of her room…
While the newsman announced to all mankind
NASA’s found water on the moon.
