Lyra (Alpha Lyrae)

by Zigmund Tauberg

From the Sky Lyra, a star
transmits a song without words,
on wings of beams.
The chant is mute and far off,
but I feel it vibrating
into my heart.

And Vega sends its white and blue flame,
carrying this message
to other worlds, to our beings,
through the immense way between us.

From remote worlds, thus,
a star is calling us.
Beyond life, beyond death,
a star is calling us.
