Watcher Of The Skies - Poem by Richard Allen Beevor

Watcher of the skies turned his face to heaven,
what would he see tonight
the flight of a comet, the path of a star,
a moon so big and bright.

If he had a ship, space voyager
fifteen million tons of fuel
could he reach Alpha Centauri
the mind raised hopes so cruel.

Watcher of the skies saw a beam of light
shoot into sight, then dances
it spins around, turns upside down
then off to the east it prances.

What wonder of the darkened sky
had visited earth this night
a ship so big, full and round
no star had ever traced such flight.

Watcher of the skies had known no doubt
his dream at last fulfilled
a visitor from outer space
ship of grace from which light spilled.

His joyous love knew no bounds
he jumped, ran to the street
in such haste his watchful eyes
had missed the whole space fleet.

Watcher of the skies never saw the beam
a light cast down upon him
within a flash his body rose
thru a tube of film so thin.

Now Watcher rides the sky at night
new friends quite thin and grey
huge black eyes that see your soul
they'll come for you one day.

    huge black eyes that see your soul
    they'll come for you one day.............No doubt about the day when every soul will taste the death....
