The Starry Sky


As I look into the sky
I see the stars and wonder why
I see the big bear and little bear
I see the other constellations up there
The little dipper, the big dipper
The dog star, the north star
Morning star,and evening star
The moon and the sun for light
And the milky way so white
And then I tell myself
Yes, God flung them in the sky
He knew his stuff, He put them way up high.

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.
