Legends live on.

Look up to the stars and see,
All the legends that used to be,
Galilao Galilei and the one and only Bob Marley,
Then there's David Bowie, Prince, and Sigmund Freud
Roger Syd Barret the legend from Pink Floyd,
The kings of music MJ and Elvis, other's among the others,
Ronnie Corbert, Jack Wild, Christopher Columbus,
Steve Irwin, the croc hunter such a shame that they're gone,
But now the stars glisten the darkened skies lighting where they shone.

I like the list of legends you've assembled! It reminds me of the old Scots poem "Lament for the Makers," where the poet, William Dunbar, mourns all the poets who have died, and lists them by name.

Those who are legends , never truly die. Not forgotten , live on in what they achieved. That is why they are legends. They have achieved , eternal life! As writers , we will live on and on , when others , find our work , and many will. WE , live agin and again! WE , writers , are full of life!
