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


A glowing spheroid, uniform and mixed,
Was Earth when first from nebula congealed
But soon it was in ordered layers fixed,
For Chaos soon to Gravity must yield,
And so, precipitate, the core was steeled,
In its collapse provoking such a wave
That throbbed the newly-formed magnetic field
So great auroras ran from sky to cave
Like to a rainbow, or the lasers at a RAVE.
