We are as stars of greater mass
Engendered of a cosmic germ
Refulgent till our fusions pass
Out of our stellar term.

Then all collapses to the core;
The core, in turn, withdraws from sight
While our dimensions, as before,
Pierce not the realm of light.

And all that was our size and shape,
Our presence in celestial scape,
Withdraws behind the quantum cape
That nothing can escape.
