Star Gazing


The stars - - The Stars ! Come see them with me ….

let’s gaze beyond far , and wish upon infinity !

Until the dark fades

takes tint of new day

let us share cool night air’s mysteries .





The stars - - My , the Stars ! Champagned revelry ….

a toast heavenward : Effervesce endlessly !

Great Dippers , please spare us

sips of sparkling Polaris

then ladle sweet Milky Way dreams  .





The stars - - Such Stars ! Spilling over sky’s brim ….

streaking afar on a meteor whim !

Falling-star showers

rain ‘til the dawn hour

and return when day’s lantern has dimmed .





The stars - - Oh , the Stars ! Cosmic finery ….

faceted night , jeweled celestially !

Crown diamonds displayed

all the heavens inlaid

with stars - - Come , see them with me !
