From the formation of the solar system, 4.6 billion years ago, to the fate of the Sun as a fading white dwarf, six billion years from today, Earth: A Narrative in Verse recounts the epic of Earth's evolution in 44 cantos that document the struggle of irrepressible Life with inevitable Death. Astronomy, geology and biology are melded in poems that employ and celebrate the sounds and symbols of science to describe the formation of planets, tectonic motions, climate change, catastrophic happenings, and the odyssey of terrestrial Life from single cells to complex organisms and finally back to single cells, the last earthlings. Sobering yet uplifting, the work presents Earth in the context of universal time and space.
