Oh, those stars at night
They sure shine bright–
They flirt and wink and shimmer and shine,
They lighten up and brighten up this heart of mine.
Against a twilight sky they peer out,
Wondering what we humans fear about
The night, the moon, the aurora borealis–
That waves to all, even the most callous.
They don’t all come out at once, though–
Look up and see one, look again and Orion’s bow
Blazes bright in his place in the sky!
I’ve looked and loved and said, ‘oh, my’
To sunrise, sunset and star-studded sky–
Each vista we see is different
And for that pleasure, we pay not a cent–
The night sky is busy
With so many stars I am dizzy–
The light show of stars goes on all night
Til morning chases them home and turns on the light
Of sun that warms and wakes us to the brand new day
With all its wonders and joys as the stars tuck away
Their light and mystery for this day’s coming night
Where they will twinkle and shine to all our hearts’ delight!
