For Carl Sagan - Poem by Eugene H. Craig

I - part of an ancient star, primal atom of dust
Swirling clouds of gases unseen, creator of this living crust
Spinning protons, electrons, neutrons - from cell to galactic whirl
From new-born stars to black holes in unending, infinite swirl.
A universe in each is found, all bound by the connecting link:
Ancient star dust, unseen gases - in, out - in a wink.
The death of the old is life for the new - an ever non-ending beginning
The message the Cosmos carries whispers 5 billion years in sending...
I - part of an ancient star, 5 billion years in evolution
In ice-bound rock and burning flesh find: the permanent revolution.
