Starry Starry Night


Stars are like footprints on heaven's floor
The moon is like a giant gate to heaven's door
Why they come out at night is no mystery
There is no glare, no distractions, only ecstasy
Our eyes search in wonder for that far away star
Not knowing this special place where we already are
Yet we explore the heavens throughout the night
Hoping that our moonlight wish will make everything right
We are not guardians, but a temporary guest
To bring home dreams, a goal of our midnight quest

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
