The stars that shine

The stars have come out tonight

to remind us of our lot.

The light that shines from

these far distant forms

can take us back

to the beginning of time,

and fling us forward

into a future unknown.

How blessed we should be

to be able to observe

these celestial figures

with the wonder of a child

and the vision of a sage.
