It’s a wonder to wonder,
To want to know,
To lack understanding,
And to pursue it,

Black holes and black hearts,
Do you think we would know of these things,
If we hadn’t wondered,
We would not,

It’s a wonder to wonder,
And it’s magic to know,

But these sisters,
Knowledge and Wonder,
They are hard mistresses to keep,
They are jealous sisters,

Wonder becomes Knowledge,
With the aid of Discovery,
Knowledge becomes Wonder,
With the aid of Time,

Always the cycle.
