Song of a Star

Submitted by Libby on Fri, 12/01/2017 - 00:10

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.

Author's age when written

A lullaby. I wrote this for my story, but I thought I would publish it separately, too.


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.
