Starlight Melody - Poem by Casey Jarrell

Under the moon,
in the starry night,
there is a melody spreading throughout the light.

In the shining night,
I hear a song,
but it won't be here for long.

I travel,
I run,
I have to here that heavenly voice,
but it will be my only choice.

I make that choice,
to follow the voice,
then I will get the chance to rejoice.

I see a hill.
With the light standing still,
I saw a girl singing by a distant mill.

I saw the girl within the night,
singing with all her might under the light.

I heard the song by the shallow sea.
I will always remember the starlight melody.
