That is indeed beautiful, and thank you for the gift, MH.
Inspiring as well, and for those who don't care for poetry, my apologies in advance:
The horizon has never been featureless
and now we must leave the layers
of the mysterious past, for our limitations stop us now
but only now
for all life is short, and we must leave.
This alien place, this new home
must be seen, must be touched as much as possible
and the distant cliffs beckon, there is no resistance
Victoria gives us up willingly, for we are strangers still
Onward, for as long as we can
Onward, through dunes and cold and penetrating frosty dust
Onward, past cobbles and meteorites
Onward, till the power is gone, and our vision grows dim...
Someday we will stand static and alone, but not forever
and never now
we go onward, and see what must be seen
