What Did It Feel Like, Astronaut

What did it feel like, astronaut, as you flew into outer space?
Did you mind being so cooped up in such a tiny place?
Did the stars have points? Did the clouds race by?
Did they bump into you as you sailed by?
Did you fall like a kite when the string breaks away?
And it loses its balancing tail?
Could you hear the wind as it whistled by?
Is the world really big and round?
Were you scared, astronaut? Were you happy and glad,
When you walked again on the ground?
