This cosmos, indisputably, a sheer wonder We cannot but bow before its grandeur To what strange terrains opens its doors And what secrets, hidden beneath the stars
From the merciless emptiness sans light, From the deep silence of the horrendous night, Was heard the bang of hammers On the anvils of eons like thundering fire crackers
Abruptly through a gas cloud burst of inexorable force Life emerged from stardust, our energy source This is what the exponents of Big Bang assert Life, from cosmic egg was hatched, some others purport
No doubt, this universe is an infinite stretch of lattice Woven in the loom through billions of years by gratis Where myriad wonders exist in the intergalactic space And man has been on relentless effort to trace their course
As the wheels turned and as the fires burned Through cosmic vapor the first atom was churned How, over the eons, life here has flourished With man’s wisdom and efforts nourished!
Galaxies are scattered in infinite space And our planet Earth is well balanced in place After the day’s vigil, when the mighty sun sets The stars invariably take over on their night shifts
Multitudinous stars glitter and twinkle, a wondrous sight As branching chandeliers, shedding luminous light They are gems donning the night sky with their splendor Where meteors dash and star light dances in nebulous glare
Some extra terrestrial hand has set the Earth in tune And everything needed to hold life is benevolently strewn Through countless dawns and sunset Endless generations did come and beget
Just as this universe was born, it would one day die With all the planets, stars and starlets of the sky Who can predict how it is going to end With a bang or whimper, or is the end impend?
