a day late but...

Ray Bradbury @JPL Nov 12, 1971, on the eve of Mariner 9 going into orbit at Mars

“If Only We Had Taller Been”

The fence we walked between the years

Did bounce us serene.

It was a place half in the sky where

In the green of leaf and promising of peach

We'd reach our hands to touch and almost touch the sky,

If we could reach and touch, we said,

'Twould teach us, not to ,never to, be dead.

We ached and almost touched that stuff;

Our reach was never quite enough.

If only we had taller been,

And touched God's cuff, His hem,

We would not have to go with them

Who've gone before,

Who, short as us, stood tall as they could stand

And hoped by stretching, tall, that they might keep their land,

Their home, their hearth, their flesh and soul.

But they, like us, were standing in a hole.

O, Thomas, will a Race one day stand really tall

Across the Void, across the Universe and all?

And, measured out with rocket fire,

At last put Adam's finger forth

As on the Sistene Ceiling,

And God's hand come down the other way

To measure man and find him Good,

And Gift him with Forever's Day?

I work for that.

Short man, Large dream, I send my rockets forth

between my ears,

Hoping an inch of Good is worth a pound of years.

Aching to hear a voice cry back along the universal Mall:

We've reached Alpha Centauri!

We're tall, O God, we're tall!
