Unknown Author

Not a sea of flame
Whose waves and deeps
Shall gulf the sun’s and worlds
But as a night, a darkness, and a silence
Past all light
Beyond all sound,
Oblivion waits and sleeps

Within its absolute encircling sweeps,
The universe
A stream of stars that sight deems countless
But upon whose gleaming flight like some eternal tide,
Oblivion creeps

A darkness and a silence,
There shall draw to one eclipse
The systems,
And disperse this strange and troubled dream
Of time and place
Then sun nor world shall be, nor light, nor law,
But endless night and emptiness of space
A vast nirvana of the universe
