Song of a Star

A Poem By Libby // 11/30/2017

Star in the sky,
Lonely and blue,
Farwell to thy
Fading view.
So come tomorrow
Thy smile array,
And all the world’s sorrow
Be wiped far away!
Oh will that day
Come sunrise, or nay?
Oh star in the sky—
My star in the sky,
I bid thee goodbye,
Fair star yonder nigh,
Oh star in the sky—
My star in the sky.


This is really beautiful,

This is really beautiful, Libby. Does it have a tune?

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

I love it!

And when I read it, I imagine your voice reciting it. :)
I really like the simple rhyme and how short each line is... it makes it feel like a gem from a simpler time, filled with more wonder, now forgotten.

"The idea that we should approach science without a philosophy is itself a philosophy... and a bad one, because it is self-refuting." -- Dr. Jason Lisle

Thank you!

Damaris: Thanks so much! It does have a tune to it.
James: What a complement! Thanks so much!

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper
