The Explorer

She said,
as we stood on the shore,
“Where the world ends,
they say, my husband is lost.
He sailed to the edge of the sea
from where no man returns.
The very horizon makes me weep.”

Then, from behind us, he said,
“Wife, I’ve learned two things just now.
I love you, after all –
and the Earth is round.
