What lies beyond the forest trees?
That stood against the sun
Beyond the vastness of the fields,
In which we used to run?
I wonder now what lies behind
The darkness of the night;
I wonder where I shall find,
That everlasting night
I wonder where the earth’s end is
I wish I knew the place;
So I might view from earth’s extremes,
The whole of outer space.
What lies beyond the world we see?
Does such a place exist?
And if there is, I’ll come to see
To make some friends, at least.
