In my opinion, another outstanding write by this gifted and prolific poet, for surely he must be called a poet and master of the craft - a smooth poem in its rhyming rhythm and a joy to read. I have only two suggestions, because I care, so with your permission, dear Sir:
2nd stanza - 4th line - delete word "of," to preserve the rhythm,
Last stanza, last line - I believe there is a typo there - the word "an" should undoubtedly be "and" - otherwise, perfection in write and rhyme...

I loved this well written poem that gives credit where it is due. We would all like to make our mark on this world, so this poem is very relatable. Im happy that someday I'll leave something of worth in the poems I write.

Your poem is full of wisdom, and good advice. We should go out there to win, or at the very least, come out having achieved something good. There are lots of things that we can improve in our daily life. Another lovely poem, my friend. :)) Sandra xx

You convey an important message in this well-written poem with abcb rhyme scheme -- to succeed, one must believe he or she can, then boldly follow through. Those who aim high enough will be remembered when they achieve their goals.

In stanza 3, line 1, you intend plurals, not possessives; so all three apostrophes should be omitted. Once you do so, tell me; and I'll remove this comment to leave you a clean review.

I love your tribute to the great ones throughout history that gave us
more than they knew and provided us with a model for greatness.
Excellent rhyme and meter throughout for a smooth read.
Your last line first word is missing the d on the end of "and"
Nancy

Yes indeed, for the discoveries, near an far, the adventurous ones who risked privations, some dying in the process, some paying dearly in their private lives, all those martyrs, losing lives for the gospel's sake, salute. Well done, beautifully written in ballad style, 8787 abcb rhyming, well done, blessings, Roy

They Dared to Try is a great aspirational and inspirational poem. We need heroes to look up to as evidence that anything is possible if we dare to try.

There are 2 minor additions to make:
Lindberg(h)
also:
an(d) earned their place in the sun.

I love the consistence 8 syllables every other line in this poem, it set the tempo for a nice flow, like a tale spoken of before a battle to rally the troops into courage! Nicely done!
