               Of course, within so vast a universe
               There must be other planets bearing life,
               For if our wondrous planet can disburse
               Organic matter, then it must be rife.

               It’s only with the distances so far
               And probably impossible to pass,
               The most we’ll do is gaze upon a star
               Like ours and wonder endlessly, alas.

               Still, in that vast astronomy, there must
               Be other beings with intelligence
               Likewise arisen from the starry dust:
               That probability should be immense.

                    Our deepest craving’s not to be alone
                    But to find space-mates in our astral zone.
