    AN EXPOSTULATION by C.S.Lewis
    Why did you lure us on like this,
    Light-year on light-year, through the abyss,
    Building (as though we cared for size!)
    Empires that cover galaxies,
    If at the journey’s end we find
    The same old stuff we left behind,
    Well-worn Tellurian stories of
    Crooks, spies, conspirators, or love,
    Whose setting might as well have been
    The Bronx, Montmartre, or Bethnal Green?
    ~
    Why should I leave this green-floored cell,
    Roofed with blue air, in which we dwell,
    Unless, outside its guarded gates,
    Long,long desired,the Unearthly waits,
    Strangeness that moves us more than fear,
    Beauty that stabs with tingling spear,
    Or Wonder, laying on one’s heart
    That finger-tip at which we start
    As if some thought too swift and shy
    For reason’s grasp had just gone by?
