Skills of detection surprise even us
On an interplanetary scale, shimmers
Warn of fields lying in wait to tell
The false ones from the soothsayers…
We knew not what awaited us when
Our party crossed those space screens
Hung betwixt worlds without names,
Rare marbles indeed, shock unabated.
For what we wished to achieve, did
We dare go further than those before?
Nay, for what might escape chains
As strongly made as the void’s dreams?
