Terpsichorean Astronomy

Starlight dancer on the nightsky floorMove sidereal
Tracing footpaths that I would explore
Lithe, ethereal

Astronautic as I walk the sky
Approaching closely
Meteoric, I cannot pass by
Your orbit knows me

Gravitation, across this divide
Draws us together
A force insisting that we must collide
In the dance floor nether

Satellites we two have now become
Swaying, swinging slow
Circumlocuting, we must succumb
Our twinned stars aglow

Centrifugation, we will one day part
This perfect meanwhile
Hardship can never undo this start
That makes the end worthwhile
