The world keeps spinning
All things alight in their time
Nothing is constant
Even the darkest night is
Pierced by the radiant stars
Link: “The world turned upside down” to “the world keeps spinning”.
Alight can mean “to descend” or “to come off of”, or it can also mean to “suddenly chance upon”. The ambiguity is purposeful.
This poem counters the negative uncertainty of the previous poem with a more positive feeling.
