Both solid earth and great reaching sky
With mighty shackles did seem to bind
Our quest to see what beyond did lie
And what great wonders we could find.
Yet there came a day in decades past
When we sought to break our chain
Two titans woke at long last
To reach the skies above the rain.
One sent out a wayfarer of steel
Small yet great in equal measure
And in the heavens it did feel
Untold wonder and silent pleasure.
Soon followed a mortal man
A simple fellow of blood and flesh
He went above and said "We can!"
And the world once more seemed fresh.
All eyes then settled on one great sphere
Silent and lovely did it always hover
The task was now made crystal clear
With boots we wished its face to cover.
Both titans set forth their greatest minds
To create a testament of untold might
They would not allow the earth which binds
To fill them with either sloth nor fright.
Sadly there were those that died
From both titans their blood did spill
And when they did the titans cried
But they refused
