Stars rise In a wheel all around. White shoulders bare, By water Surrounded, This other light rises, A head Crowned in halo above The surface. But seek the deepest Cave for refuge. Begin a new inheritance— Just like the white creatures Of the sea, Seek the lowest depths. Above, The moon will still rise, So simple a circle So bright and white.
