“I too am written/and at this very moment/ someone spells me out”—Explain the lines.

Answer: The poet suddenly discovers that the secret origin of this universe has been immortalized by the presence of the stars. Then he thinks that he would also be immortal through the presence of his creations. So, by the grace of Muse, the goddess of poetry, the poet begins to write poems. Here the ‘very moment’ refers to that time when someone will read his poetries and the phrase “spells out” means “comes to know”. The poet also thinks that after his death when the future generation will read his poetries, they shall come to know about the poet and through this knowledge of them, the poet will be immortal.
