I See the Spinning Stars

Donald P. Goodman III

Version 1.0,
I see the spinning stars and worlds in th' crystal sky, all marking out their long-appointed sacred ways, and heedless of the pleas of those who question, "Why? O, why must heaven spin as 't has in latter days, and not how I would wish it?" Still, around they turn, the universe together, as it's always been; by look, they are indiff'rent, neither scorn nor yearn; regardless of our protestations, so they spin. So often men their hate of them will loudly say, condemn them for their heedlessness of good and sin; But ne'ertheless, the world unfolds howe'er it may, and we must know the stars will take their proper way.
