Explorer

"There's no sense in going further --

it's the edge of cultivation,"

So they said, and I believed it --

broke my land and sowed my crop --

Built my barns and strung my fences

in the little border station

Tucked away below the foothills

where the trails run out and stop.

 

Till a voice, as bad as Conscience,

rang interminable changes

In one everlasting Whisper

day and night repeated -- so:

"Something hidden. Go and find it.

Go and look behind the Ranges --

Something lost behind the Ranges.

Lost and waiting for you. Go!"

 

-- Rudyard Kipling
