Possibilty For J.T.Early - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

The universe appears to be
expanding outwards constantly
At speeds exceeding that of light.

Its origin a mystery.
But throughout mankind’s history
We have observed the stars at night.

Though early men with naked eye
recorded movements in the sky.
Which had the power to excite

their naïve curiosity
They were convinced that there must be.
Some reason why the stars shone bright.

But different men thought differently.
It seemed that there would never be
consensus as to who was right.

But now with new technology
We have gained the ability
To study stars far out of sight.

The use of radio telescopes
can raise and sometimes dash our hopes.
They are in use by day and night.

We still can’t solve the mystery,
are we alone or might there be
Races hidden from our sight.

In other distant galaxies
Too far away for us to see.
It seems entirely apposite.

That like the early men we try
to read the message in the sky.
Perhaps one day we’ll get it right.
