Breaking ice in hostile waters
Adrift in cautious thrust
Shadowing celestial signs
Where from exactitude is trust

For the betterment of futures
A sacrifice for knowledge gained
Triumph trades fiasco’s end
In disarray forever chained

Making headway changing places
Supremely statuesque 
Sustaining law and mainstay order
Motions tabled on that desk

ADJECTIVE - Admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering:

A remarkable story of brave steadfast adventure into the unknown. With others HMS Resolute set out in April 1852 to search for the missing British explorer Sir John Franklin who had left Britain in 1845 in search of the fabled  Northwest Passage through the Canadian Arctic.wikipedia Link - Northwest_Passage
HMS Resolute was a mid-19th-century barque-rigged ship of the British Royal Navy, specially outfitted for Arctic exploration. Resolute became trapped in the ice and was abandoned. Recovered by an American whaler, she was returned to Queen Victoria in 1856. Timbers from the ship were later used to construct a desk which was then presented to the President of the United States.- LINK - wikipedia HMS Resolute (1850)
