Charade No. 34

You witness in my beauteous first
The wonders of creation;
My next is blessed or accurst (cursed),
As he fulfills his station:
My total (whole) dances round the year;
The present soon will disappear.

Could it be a maypole? :)

No, but thanks for guessing!

is it the sun?

Remember that the answer will be a word with two syllables. The first clue refers to the first syllable, the second clue ("my next...") refers to the second syllable, and the last ("my total") refers to the whole word.

Good luck!

A hint: for the first syllable ("my beauteous first"), think of something huge that can be beautiful, but also dangerous. Some people see it all the time, some people see it from time to time, and still others have never seen it.
