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.
