Christopher Reeve


I flew around as Superman
A comic idol I have become
Praised by ages both the young and old
A celebrity that I now was.

With my outer looks I was physically fit
To do anything that I pleased
What a symbolic idol I appeared
To my fellow American fans.

One day I took a horseback ride
Like any other normal day
When a sudden leap of tragic fate
Led to my horrific state.

And now I am permanently paralyzed
Unable to live my life the same
But every day I dream of those glorious days
Like I was Superman.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
