Comet Landing

What does a comet sing of?

What’s in the hum and the thrum of its sound

As it blazes its way through the black all around?

Does it sing of the empty and infinite night,

Of the vast lonely void stretching far out of sight?

Does it sing of the fury of fire? Does it cry

Of the awe and the wonder of star-studded sky?

Does it roar at the terrible beauty? Or chime

With the long-distant music of time before time?

What does a comet sing of?

Does it sing of new worlds as they sizzle and spark?

Or only of nothing, a fathomless dark?

And then, as it speeds on its journey through space,

Does it sing of the tickle from earth on its face?
