Star Dust
By Charles Henry Lüders (1858–1891)
 
INNUMERABLE ages since—before
The sun’s gold paled to silver on the moon,
Or earth ran round to take on both their hues,
A monstrous bubble, out of chaos blown,
Swelled through the dusk—grew luminous—and lit        5
All space an instant;—then with ringing shock
Burst!—and from out the jewelled mist there swung
Millions of stars to glow forevermore!
