How great the passion they must have had
to have pursued the mini planet, Pluto
with their astronomical inquiries
launched several years ago
and now partially consummated.
To wait so long for a celestial event
is beyond my comprehension –
I who sometimes grow impatient
for the sun to set in my beloved west.
For those who continually pursue
what most of us have never seen
is well beyond my scope of understanding
and yet I must admit that I am moved
that there are people in our midst
exploring portions of the space
well beyond the places of the human race.
