We shall never cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Poem

She departed without explanation;
I had thought that she’d gone on vacation,
But she went to survey
Unknown lands far away.
Her excursion’s main aim: exploration.
