Whilst watching the galaxies like a hawk
And then take a break for a cup of tea

And find that we have poured you three!
So get yourself too lost in Chat . . .

And wonder whether the earth is flat
Or if the moon is made of cheese

Or if the LHC will squeeze
The Earth into a mean black hole!

And tear apart each living soul
Oh what verse this late hour brings

Till Paddy comes back to us and sings!
And radiators play their part . . .

Whilst Caro creates some new space art
And Pat and Geoff discuss their plants

Of Puerto Rico's telescope

Before the dawn is in the sky

Darn! At the zoo, the time doth fly!
But I've galaxies to classify
And a still-raw brain to fry . . .
"Sorry to add lines on the sly
But I can't resist!" I cry.
Now quiet, moi, let someone else . . .

Take care of the rest,
O how much I enjoy to play in this nest!
With all the best,
So I can finally pass the math test.

And finally reach the final crest
Ah, but no...there's more to climb

Had we but world enough and time
We'd still not classify them all

That's because we are so small,
and time to us is just short and sweet.

But still each other we daily greet
before or after the task in hand
Oh let me just a moment stay
where time is not and angels play the paeans of the galaxies;
then speed the stardust on its flight
to change dread darkness into light, cold chaos into ecstasy!
