KNOW THIS, THAT EVEN WHEN THE DYING SUN...

Know this: that even when the dying sun
   In its last desperate hour fills the sky,
And the proud planets, shaken and undone,
  Are caught into the tumult and the cry--
Know this: That God Himsef is not at bay
  And time without beginning has no end.
New stars are burning on the Milky Way,
  New worlds are shaping on the cosmic wind.

And all the things we love, however lost,
  The road, the house, the orchard and the hill,
The field of yellow daisies and the frost,
  Their purpose served, will have a purpose still
And time and time again will take new station
  In an eternal cycle of creation.
