Two friends gathered
all the
from the firmament,
sorting them
like loose beads.

Perhaps it was Ejnar
who lined them up by colour
from blue to red,
with our yellow Sun
right in the centre.

And maybe it was Henry
who ordered them from dim
to blindingly bright,
with our moderate Sun
in the middle still.

Two friends stringed a chain
from newborns to dying stars,
surrounded by giants and dwarves,
who long for our middle-aged Sun
as its central jewel.
