‘luminary clock’ sitting ‘at an unearthly height’ is a complex and ambiguous image given in the poem. On a plane level, it fits the description of moon too but as a metaphor, it is a spiritual presence for the mood in which the speaker is. It is the passage of time which goes no matter what and the speaker feels like he is out of the time and space.
