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!)
