Angela Wybrow (Salisbury, Wilts, UK)
I love to watch the night stars, as they glow;
They are one of nature’s ‘free for all’ shows.
Take the time to look upwards, towards the night sky,
And be amazed at the spectacle, which meets your eye.
There are different stars: both big and small.
Twinkling away, like lights at a fairytale ball.
I’m not so fond of cloudy days, I have to say,
When, these natural wonders, are hidden away.
We spend most of our time, looking straight ahead,
Or, snuggling up, in our nice warm and cosy beds.
So when it’s dark, we tend to miss this amazing sight:
This spectacular show, playing at such a great height.
I love to look up at the sky, on a cloudless night,
And feel totally astounded by this awesome sight.
Upwards, it is worth your while, to stand and stare,
As you can never tell, exactly what you will see there.
