They say that the universe is dying,
but I think that’s a pessimistic view.
There’s life in her yet, and she is trying
to keep up pace at making stars anew.

Though numbered fewer than when she began,
there still are stellar nurseries afoot
let’s not obsess so much on her life span
and focus on her beauty, not output.

Though she’s mature – this there’s no evading –
her sparkle’s dimmed and her life's emptier,
it’s premature to say that she’s fading
She’s got a lot of billions left in her.

Headlines hyperbolize, so you’ll turn the page.
She’s only just approaching middle age.

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.
