In a sense, the Cosmos is changeless,

because its motions are determined

by unalterable laws

which cause it to revolve eternally

without beginning and end.

Its parts manifest, disappear

and are created anew,

again and again

in the undulating pulse of time.

Through the process of time,

life within the Cosmos

is regulated and maintained.

Time renews all things in the Cosmos,

by the circling process of change,

measured by the heavenly bodies

returning to their former positions

as they revolve around the heavens.
