Listen to the Poem
In the dark sky so vast,
The constellation of stars shines in contrast.
Around the glimmering moon,
Shaped like a squirrel, dragon or raccoon.
In the breezy silver night,
Their sparks spread light.
Above the earth and the land,
Over the sea’s foam and the desert’s sand.
The embroidered sky’s silver reflects in lakes.
Sparkling like snow flakes.
Why do stars hide under the grey lining of the clouds?
Why don’t they reach the ground.
