The Secret of Saturninset-saturn-rings-large

 

What is it about you

that drives men mad

building spacecraft

to traverse the impossible

space of this universe

just to be close enough

to read your wavelengths,

to reach through magnetic

fields and swirling dust

that shroud you in mystery,

to glimpse the heat rising

from pole to pole—the source

of your power, your storms—

and hope your light bursts forth?
