Ginny Goes to Mars
Lauren McBride

Look! Up in the sky!
It’s a bird . . .
It’s a plane . . .
It’s Superman Ingenuity:
the little chopper
that could –
carried by Perseverance
to become (in 2021)
the first powered flight
on another planet.

Poet’s Notes: The one year anniversary of this historic flight will be on April 19, 2022.
