Oh, how I'd like to know infinity.
To hold that vastness in my head
Even for a moment.
To know beneath my hair there lies
The universe, that spots my skies
Oh, if my eyes could hold the spark
That births stars of blazing glory
I would never cry.
To sense the forces that impel
All things into being, if I could -
I wish I could.
But I am me and I am small
Bound to this planet of this scale
With a mind that can just grasp
A trip traversing half this sphere.
I'd still like to know infinity.
