Unless you're getting fancy and try to associate the creation of light with the pre-star formation part of the big bang, I think it's safer to look at the structure of the poem per se, and realize that 'day' is very slippery semantically in this context, and that the days are not intended to be chronologically ordered.

But there was really light before there were a sun and stars.
As you point out, the chronology only makes sense if you factor in the big bang.
