In the Infinite Night of Light and Stars

Is it a solitary watchman
who sleeps within
the brazier's glow

Or is there perchance
some caring nurse
going on her rounds
with lighted candle
and reassuring word
her gentle hand
upon the ward

Or on the beat
a constable
with friendly nod
and timely counsel
to keep the evil-doer
at bay

Or heavenly squadrons
storming ever onwards
with flaming swords

Or is it only fireworks
