A Night As Bright As Noon

it is addressed thusly:
To get to heaven, you must go up.

it reads:
Here there is no sun
That is to say not one
But everywhere a star
And everywhere very far

Up is here the only way
Toward the night and toward the day
Might enough to make man burst
Such an endless, mighty thirst

As I come about the round
A peculiarity I have found
For it is still night by the sky
Still for light I shield my eye

How dark the abyss, the great Unknow
How bright the heavens' chiaroscuro
How still the music, how quiet the moon
Endless is this night as bright as noon.
