Eclipse of Sun

.

Eclipse of Sun is quite a sight

since for a while day looks like night

when moon moves ‘twixt the Earth and Sun

and over light the dark has won

or seemingly in visioned sleight.

..

That syzygy alignment might

in past have given grievous fright.

Yet now we know ere has begun

eclipse of Sun.

.

These days this marvel can ignite

excitement of supernal height

with mise en scènes our senses stun

in pageants not to be outdone,

while world continues on despite

eclipse of Sun.
