In the pitch of midnight black a shining
The stitch of an illusory lining
Weary traveler opines, where is my place?
The eyes go towards well-lit grace

Sheer magnitude of emptiness and yet
Rooms-a-plenty past midnight's rest
Lost, the traveler mused, where is my place?
The eyes go towards well-lit grace

But shines a little longer this shining
Ever so present in the illusory lining
Robust a light for all to see this
Shining bright, refulgent bliss

In that dark of midnight black scarred lie
A star, like a pearl in the sky
The traveler sings, there, that is my place
Found vacancy in well-lit grace
