Paint the Sky with Stars

Paint the Sky with Stars

Paint the sky with stars,

And pull the shivering moon close

Whisper encouragement to the comets

With their extraordinary tails, infinitely more fantastic

Than the plumage of a rare, exotic bird.

Embrace the darkness of the night;

Listen close for the star’s sighing endearments,

Make the night your companion as you

Exchange stories of lost love.

When asked to share their secrets, the stars

Twinkle mischievously,

The moon winks mysteriously, and the comets

Sail by without a word.

The night inhabitants keep the best secrets.

They keep and keep and keep.
