Black Star


Black Star, Black Star
I wish I'd know where you are.
I need a wish, to help me out
in my dark world full of doubt.

Black Star, Black Star
shining brighter than the rest,
You're hiding in your deep dark nest.
Come out to play, its safe I say
I need you, you're the only way.

Black Star, Black Star,
hiding away oh so deep.
Black Star, Black Star
watch me as I fall asleep...

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
