A NEW COMET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Maverick of the skies, charging with fiery tail
Last Line: To live and laugh and dream and hope and love by.
Subject(s): Comets; Universe


Maverick of the skies, charging with fiery tail
From pasture to cold pasture of interstellar space;
Branded with an earth name, not with the mark
Of the Great Rancher who herds universes;
Lassoed by our gaze, for a brief while,
Then plunging far from sight again to return
After a cycle of straying, you remind us
There is a dark beginning, a dark ending,
For everything; a little light between
To live and laugh and dream and hope and love by.
