He once asked his parents why,
Sputnik’s importance they passed by…
Mom said, it was you
We were bringing into,
The world and be happy at a baby’s cry!
(The Russian Sputnik was the first satellite in space—launched October 4th, 1957. My parents had a rather more important–to them– delivery received on that same date!)
