The Adventure

From the July 1961 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Launched into infinity, not space, Who can feel frustrated or alone In the great adventure, Promised support and "marrow" to the "bone"— Unfailing strength, with Mind to chart and trace Unerring course from sound and proven base? Clear through each barrier of sense, Breaking established records (for no speed Computable by instrument Could match that thinking rapider than deed) The traveler, assured of his defense, Thrills to explore the fathomless immense. Ready at zero signaling to leap And split the walled-up cubicle of sleep, To rocket forth and prove Unmeasurable the force, unchecked the sweep Of that resistless power, that ultimate deep— Of Love.
