The Stepwise Palace - a FSVO sequence
Start | Index | About


Southward, substituting time for space:
Back before the force of gravity
Had kindled fire: darkness on the face
Of all the void, a dim serenity
Of neutral hydrogen, a sunless sea.
But e’en the simplest atom has its song:
Though spin to counter-spin unlikely be
In one, in such great numbers do they throng
We hear the TWENTY-ONE LINE ring out clear and strong.
