Collapsing Universe

Rating: 5.0

I will write the poem of poems
I will sing the song of songs
I will dance the dance of dances
I will play the sound of sounds
But sounds are never half so fair
As when whole music turns to pure air
And the universe dies of excellence.

Poem, song, dance and sound
Fall from their heavenly towers.

Joys walk no longer down the blue world's shore.

Astronomers tell us that it is Dark Matter that holds the universe from flying apart. And anyway, 'How can we know the dancer from the Dance? '

when the walls that you have built yourself fall down, truly you shall be free for your 'Eternity' sea and sky as one.

Cracker of a poem daubmir! My universe collapsed a while back but not from excellence so I will trust in your final assertion of freedom. 10 from Tai, couldn't live without her poesy and song and dance either

'the universe dies of excellence' is a striking line. The scansion is remarkable; wonderful sense of loftiness without ego.
