Rationalist Poetry Fans, Unite!

I came here just to post "Ulysses"! 

And the accompanying song: "Untraveled Worlds" by Paul Halley. The song has lots of sentimental value to me because I sang it in choir when I was in sixth grade. Out of ten years' worth of songs, I chose to have the choir sing it again during my last year of high school. 

I would also quote:

Come, my friends,

'T is not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite

The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths

Of all the western stars, until I die.

Reminds me of the prophecy from HPMOR: "the one who will tear apart the very stars in heaven". It's just so utterly epic. And I'm not even the space-travel type!
