[Supernova]

Stars must blow with a sonic boom 
They shine for years then embrace their doom 
I'm talking with awe of a supernova 
A microsecond's bomb, and then it's over 
 
Intense, fiery end to a glorious life 
Proud nuclear lustre of heat and of strife 
From shimmering body to a compact white dwarf 
Mere mortals must bow to the fantabulous morph 
 
The pulsar's throb for decades remains 
The heartbeat lives on, and seldom wanes 
Steam and gas and dust form a cloud 
Vivid see-through colours, glittering proud 
 
This event is no death, it's still yet a birth 
Supernovas cede their treasures to our earth 
Generously offering their gifts to all corners 
Metals and elements shower the mourners 
 
We feel the occurrence though it's distant and far 
We marvel at the beauty of the death-thralled star 
the planets still spin, hour after hour 
We'll never comprehend the universe's power
