The Traveling Bards

by Mary E. Lowd

The space around our tiny craft
Is vast, but we’re cramped
Looking through windows
And at readouts on screens
Analyzing things

Our ship is small
And the voyage long
But we want to see it all
—from far off worlds
To nebulas with clouds that swirl—
So we can memorialize it in song
