because people speak English
If I could see beyond distant space;
Through planets and through galaxies.
And follow paths that space ship trace,
Where lie’s the world of Socrates;
If I could fly through empty space;
Far way beyond the Milky Way
And move to and fro at super pace;
Where mortal fear induces all to pray.
If I did live in that barren space,
Without the sun and its glowing face
Some hundred light-years from this place,
Where people lose their knightly…
I looked at the stars with a gloom in my heart,
They numbered on some million they were.
Those clouds flew by to their destined end,
And dew settled down on that cold chilly night.
The world slept on as the night began to fade,
And creatures there shivered as they lay;
I pulled at my moist uncomfortable drape,
And longed for the warmth that passed beyond my way;
The moonlit shone over the distant scene,
