I Am In Love With The Sky - Poem by Michael Ardizzone

I am in love with the sky:
its rains can only build
life as it hugs the grateful earth.
(To give life, the greatest
way to be.)

The stars are in love with me
their light, oh, it is enough for me
(and the children that we are
can take off their clothes
and lounge, happy
under this sky)

An emptiness there
tainted blue by day,
but by night, it's true,
the sky is the best space
to hold two lovers apart
(or to keep men from
the blackness of space) .

Nothing can build
that can't also erase-
but I'll meet my end
with a smiling face.
