   Although there’s very little that we know
   of the vast cosmological domain,
   our sciences at last begin to show
   some wonders that these mysteries contain,

   For now we can begin to calculate
   with the precision of our instruments
   what hitherto we’d merely speculate
   upon of far-off, long-ago events.

   And yet it’s hard to think, for all our thought,
   that though we learn the what, the where, the how
   by which this wondrous universe was wrought,
   the why of it no science can endow.

        That mystery remains unfathomed still,
        a wonderment that only faith may fill.
