Prologue in Heaven by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The sun goes
on its ancient journey
along with its brotherly spheres
singing sweet celestial melodies
caught inside
the angels
ears

While Earth splendours
in its own swirling circling flight
paradaisical light changing
to the darkness of night

Sea raging foaming upwards
and out
surging re-surging
against the rocky
outcroppings
in this planetary
racing

And the tempests
roar and shatter windows
on land and sea
with effervescence
and deep spiraling energy

There are flashes of light
destruction
the crashing of thunder
on the mountain

but the angels
remain in their heavenly repose
listening the
sounds of the Moon
and the Stars

The world in its totality
is of the greatest
sublime
towering over both
man and angel kind
