Stars To You - Poem by William Alston

I eye a night so fly and in flight
Where constellations imply, your creation was so right
It seems space, as well as I, will take such delight
In sharing a by-and-by with a girl of your sight.
Thank you for inspiring a dream, so I wish on a star
Soon I’ll say “my bank grew obscene! ” you’ll correct me and say “our! ”
The planets lift their heads and lights flicker
Neptune says no to nibble, so I bite-
Then Saturn says 'Just kiss her! '
And Mars maddens while Venus’s heart gladdens
And as a distance threatens
Saturn’s rings wanted to part, but fully hadn’t
Shapes that rocks drew
Designs for us two
Love that an exploding star’s shock knew
And the dark whispers- Thank you
