Travelers

English: Face of Mars made by Viking.

English: Face of Mars made by Viking. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A speck of dust too small to see,
A drop of rain from over the sea,
All these traveled an infinity
And found their way to me.

Then I reached with longing arm
Across a million shimmering stars,
A hand more tender than the god of war,
To touch the lonely face of Mars.
