Can you peer through those eyes?
The radiance must be blinding.
As I gaze into them
I've come to understand
What the ancients must have felt,
Looking up toward

All the mysteries and wonders of life
Are clearly reflected, as is the light.
And even if I'd never be sure just
What chemicals kindle
A star's faithful burn
I would still spend every night
Dreaming up poems about
