"Star Light, Star Bright--" Comments

Rating: 3.5
Star, that gives a gracious dole,
What am I to choose?
Oh, will it be a shriven soul,
Or little buckled shoes?

...

Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker was a one of kind woman and poetess. An incredible imagination to project great rhyme and subject matter. Sometimes with a poetic, cutting edge satire and thank goodness for that. Thank you Dorothy Parker and sleep well. Sleep well.

Another delightful poem. Dorothy Parker's work is among the best as far as I'm concerned.

A beautiful poem by the witty and acerbic but always brilliant Dorothy Parker. A poem displaying her feelings, hopes and desires also her feelings of a loss. A magnificent and brilliant woman of her time. Sleep well good Dorothy and thank you.

My only wish I dare not say- Lest you should grant me him..... Brilliant expression to expose the obsessive heart. Enjoyed.

Sounds like Dorothy knew what she wanted - but was at the same time fearful that she would be granted him. Perhaps it had something to do with the mention of a liar.... Miss Parker was an absolute pistol!

The end is interesting. I am glad that wishing on a star does not work. What would life be without a little bit of sorrow; a little bit of working for what we want? A little bit of waiting and a little bit of anticipation for the things to come whether they are good or bad.

Swing you low or high away, Burn you hot or dim; My only wish I dare not say- Lest you should grant me him An excellent poem on love which makes love eternal and supreme I enjoyed it. Col Muhammad Khalid khan
