Whirling through the universe

hurtling in eternal orbit around a shining star

We chant a paean

a victory song to our survival

through aeons of change and change again

Continents rise and fall

civilizations are just a blink

But we, the wanderers, go on

We sing through the long ages

As we watch the tiny life

blaze for a moment, and flicker out

Through collisions and escapes

Moons come and go

and break apart to dance their own dance

around us as we dance around the sun

Gases and atmospheres and heat and cold

It’s all part of the dance

Our cosmogyral jig

of wheels within wheels

orbits within greater orbits

A celebration of universal creation
