Stars and Faults


There's a fault in our stars
It's always been that way
To love and lost
To have never been loved yet
Still have lost
Even light treads
Leave some kind of mark
There's a fault in our stars
It's always been that way
Crossed from our hearts
Crossed still today
And the stars implode
And the stars explode
And our footprints are in the sand
Until they're washed away
There's a fault in our stars
It's not our fault
But it's here to stay
There's a fault in our stars
It's always been that way

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
