A short poem for children
How I wonder, stranded starfish,
if you tumbled from afar, fish...
Were you once a sky star, dangling
silent in the inky high?
When the night stars seemed to twinkle,
were tears welling in their eyes,
knowing they must leave at sunrise,
faintly blinking their goodbyes?
If the sky stars still can hear you,
tell them they don't need to cry.
Soon the tide will rise and save you,
gently bathed in mirrored sky.

|Sally, now I know I am in my second childhood because this is absolutely breathtaking to me! I will henceforth view the heavens in a different light. "Ye stars! Which are the poetry of heaven!"
-- Lord Byron (1788-1824)
Onward, through your garden of verse, Dear Sally. Just Jim
