This glowing orb, securely set
Within the heavens, shining. Yet,
From distances beyond the deep,
Like Frost, with promises to keep,
A body comes to veil its ray,
Deception spread: a shorter day,
To cast in doubt the afternoon,
In twilight set the night too soon.
I will attend this awesome sight,
In silent awe, belie my plight:
As shadow leaves out into sea,
The curtain falls on these for me.
Because of years, my reckoned past,
This dance of light could be my last.
With rythyms clear the universe
Confirms the sentence, Eden’s curse.
The clock of heaven, steady, runs.
We count its step in setting suns.
