Much of a Muchness by David Coad

Above the Day

One day, one night
New lives shine bright
A hundred sunsets, a hundred moons
Life’s over, far too soon
A thousand dusks, a thousand dawns
Time and its dominion, over the newly born
A million months in a billion days

A billion years, through a trillion seasons
Life on earth, without any reasons
Eons through space, eons in time
Spirits in the universe,
Forever yours and mine
