Posts Tagged ‘stars bright’

I looked around at the sky tonight,

At the time just before the dark.

I looked to see the stars bright;

They always thrill my heart.

 

I looked but the sky was bare.

It seemed I looked in vain;

As if there were no stars up there,

At least none that were plain.

 

But then – What I “seeked,”

A pin-hole in the sky.

As if you had a bucket that leaked,

And were searching the reason why.

 

And then, close, another light appeared,

Couldn’t be far.

Two, to light the night,

The duty of a star.

 

There must be many more out;

Now, the sky must be ablaze.

As these silently “shout,”

His glory and His praise.  – eab, 3/1966
