Starlight Song

It was upon a starlit night

a bird set out to see the sights

to travel the world — near and far

more specifically, to map the stars

in the beginning of firefly June,

it was the time to admire the moon

late in the summer month of July

said the swallow,’Let us travel the sky’

so, off he flew, higher and higher

in his mind, just one desire

to touch a star, to hear it sing

feel the melody, take to the wing

High above the atmosphere

melodies drifted clear

the bird felt his wing brush a star

and heard the sweet song twinkle far

he opened his beak and sang along

drifting through the starlit song

a world of melody and grace

to earthbound beings, out of place

tinkling music off twinkling stars

against soft velvet space, stretching ever so far

Never put all your eggs in one basket

Never pin all your hopes on one star

For, if running, you trip and drop it

You’ll find all your hopes won’t get very far

Never wish something something it’s not

‘Though you can wish for something you need

Hard work and dedication can take you far

But pure willpower is not all it takes to succeed.
