My Unattainable Star - Poem by Warren Chan

Star light, star bright,
The most beautiful star in my sight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
To be with you for just one night.
To shoot through the sky in an endless flight,
To bask in your grace-
Yes, just one night.
But unfortunately you are but a star in the sky
And no matter how hard I try and try,
You’re still a star-
In that yonder sky.

    The comments says it all.
    Are these poems any short of the great, celebrated poems? Not in any way.
    In more than a few aspects, i think poems like this is better than the classic ones.

    man, I wish people would say things like this about my poems. (Report) Reply

    Very sweet and simple that makes it seem like such a sweet romanticsm poem. If you put this poem in the middle of that of Blake's, I wouldnt tell the difference. =) (Report) Reply
