Goodnight, Enterprise

your time has past,     dear friend
how happy to see you retire
though in a haze of nostalgic somber

how many times your candle lit
our night,     our morning,    our imaginations
long,     slow building hope in a hopeless era
that perhaps,     on the shoulders of a few
giants,     eggheads,     dreamers
humanity might find some light
out there to mitigate the half-gone
century of nihilism and its legacy
of burning death and dead god
a heaven empty of benevolents
yet filled with wonder nonetheless
