And as azure faded to darkened blue
The ether glittered with cosmic dust.
And as a thousand stars are born anew
A thousand burn away to stellar dust.

As celestial dominions decay
Ageless constellations start to wander.
And as the heads of Hydra burn away
The cosmos eternally stray yonder.

And as nights of spring forever march on
Lone cosmic dust remains on the last dawn.
