The voyagers

Darkness surrounds us
We huddle in space
An orb that protects us
All white with a face

We try to go up there
We see the great swathe
A glittering vista
A place we could graze

Two explorers are voyaging
About to leave home
Into the galaxy
So far from our home

The wonders they see
Will be nothing we know
By the time they are noticed
We may all be gone
