076;

If a boy must wonder,
let him recall
not the lightening grace of falcons,
the dizzying aeronautics, Darwin’s finch,
the voyage of ancients
who saw farther, whose charts and sails
and bubbly telescopic minds
brought ashore hope
to lift
a charioting god to the moon
but how
even a rogue dream of stars
once birthed the possibility of light.

{Leon Yuchin Lau; If a boy must wonder}
