Why have you reversed your spins,
unfolded moon,
dancing widdershins
across the bridge of noon?

Circle, circle line, and line
make up a quarter:
cross them, cross them now to shine
from this day’s starter.

Sliding high against the night
twists the snake’s song.
Again, again the crossing light
returns to where we belong.
