Within the torchlit cavern, hands
engraving star charts in the sands:
the Storyteller whispers rhymes
of creations, spaces, times.

Throughout the planetarium,
bright projectors light the room.
Astronomers account a boom
igniting life and everything.

Some galaxies away from Earth,
the grandest theory finds its birth
in math like music, art of light,
and sings the secrets of the night.
