He Explains It Another Way

At times we're almost able to see it was once all

Light, and wants to get back to it.

Not brilliant, swift, or huge, since Light

is the measure, and we are

Flake off of All-Measure

Cinder cast down from Sun


( explaining every "fall" and why we yearn so? )

Harnessed jelly of the Stars!
