Vaults Of The Firmament



Vaults of the firmament display a midnight sky
Diamonds on dark velvets
disclose a starry eye

Vaults of the firmament display a satellite
Balloons on canopies
disclose a moony flight

Vaults of the firmament display a planet tread
Bodies on corridors
disclose a curvy spread

Vaults of the firmament display an atmosphere
Jackets on celestials
disclose a gassy tier

Vaults of the firmament display a jet-black hole
Escapes on gravities
disclose a klutzy role

Vaults of the firmament display a history
Details on origins
disclose a mystery
