Twinkle the stars in night's display—
Sun's shining rays light up the day...
and yet, if futures vast we may
divine, white dwarf with diamond core
(that crystallized in ages yore)
will pulsate like a cosmic gong
its tintinnabulary song
(no longer sunbeams to bestow)
in seven billion years or so...;
then Sol might twinkle for the eyes
of distant poets far more wise,
beyond our cares— whoever dares
(if dreamers dwell in heres and theres,
whate'er whene'er where'er they are)
to seek and find our once bright star
(that like us also flames and dies) —
those with the loupe to look with sighs
for long lost Lucys in the skies...

Aloha and Cheers Harley! I had to have a look at your alpha posts herein... and within this beauty is that thought of one diamond being the remnant of that which keeps all of US living and breathing on this date and hopefully further on... seven billions of years does not seem such a long time to wait... to harvest one diamond... All of the best from this life, to you, and to all of our relations... Michaelw1two
I'm not sure what you mean by 'alpha posts', but I'm pleased that you discovered my poetry! This was my first astro-poem, so I have a special fondness for it. Thank you!
