“Cosmos” by C. David Hay

The heavens are solitude
I dream of stellar flight
And marvel at infinity
with countless points of light.
Celestial diamonds flashing fire
From galaxies sublime
While nebulae drift endlessly
In boundless space and time.
Planets sin in solar glow
As meteors blaze green.
Comets wander cosmic trails
Past stars we have never seen.
Yet as we gaze at distant worlds,
Mankind has clearly shown
He failed to fully comprehend
The beauty of his own.
