Star Light

(After Robert Frost's Acquainted with the Night)*


I am one acquainted with the night. *

Luna and her Daughters as my only guide.

Giving me the gift of sight.


The deep, black blanket of space where they abide,

Is a place I wish to be.

Perhaps the Milky Way needs another bride?


Perhaps He would want me?

A mere mortal of no consequence,

But what is there in me to see?


True, I have a small brilliance

That once was a bright fire,

But tonight – I feel my light's absence.


The Galaxy shall not admire

Me – however strong my desire.
