Twinkle Twinkle - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Of all the stars that dot the sky.
One single star attracts my eye
it shines more brightly than the rest.
of all the stars in that vast host.
Why should this star appeal the most?
I do not know the reason why.
I rack my brain I really try
hard to resolve this mystery.
I have no reason now to boast.
It feels as though I failed some test,
perhaps a reasonable request.
A feeling I cannot deny.
I simply can’t communicate
the stellar distance is too great.

    It is all so awe inspiring Ivor, when you think of the distance and how long ago they actually shone. Lovely write and a pleasure to read it.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
