Poem: "Light and Wind and Fire"

This poem was inspired and sponsored by wcg.  It's about star formation and the elements of space; I recommend this background material.

Light and Wind and Fire

Of these things the stars are made,
Shining in their vast parade:

Light that glimmers in the dark,
Kindled from a primal spark

Wind that blows the dust about,
Breathing ever out and out

Fire that beats back the cold,
Making elements of old.

Of these things the stars are born,
Bits of matter rent and torn --

Thus they make lifeforms as well,
Hearts and tongues their tales to tell.
