o, bright stars! collection

o, bright stars!

the nebulas of space

and twinkle in'er eye

are much of the same

divine li'l sparkle


she glistens, she glowers

she towers and looms

she gleams, she glows

she dreams and lives on


a wish

does live on,

a wish to the stars.

a wish from your lips,

whispered in darkness,

floats

up to nothing.


the void

has grown legs

and thick flowing fur

and now is not void

but blinks up from the abyss

with glowing bright eyes


he stumbles, he falls

he doesn't hold on

he cries out so loud

but fades out to whimpers
