If only I could find a way
across this vast Milky way;
Of puzzling lights & hazy maze
And travail of those lonesome days.
Across the boundaries known to men
Into that giant ghastly glen;
I’d sail and swim through that sea
Of sheer silence and symphony.
I’d sway along with them solar winds
with an image flashing in my mind;
Of my beloved earth & humankind
as I leave the sweet home behind.
FARE THEE WELL – Spaceship Earth.
