Over Faraway Horizons

by Mary E. Lowd

What great wonders
Might we discover
In the farthest reaches
—on extra-solar beaches—
Over a horizon
Where a different sun rises

Will it surprise us?
Or perhaps teach us
To grow
Humbler & wiser
As we learn how much
We don’t already know

When we touch the sky
Will we still remember
To pause
And wonder why
