In the skies that rest so gently on high,
The stars, they gleam with radiance aglow
Against the black heavens of the dark night
They've moved me to wonder since long ago
Oh, Stars, must I leave thy heavenly glow?
For seasons turn, as do the diamond skies
And take with them the stars of their abodes
As months and years, they pass, so fleeting by,
And in so, leave my only wish to know
Oh, Stars, why must we depart on this night,
In this vivid fantasy of twilight?
I'll miss the gleams of winter in the spring,
The beams of light as summer turns to fall
And though new stars arrive in Earth's great swing
Those I've come to love flee from all below
Abdicate their glorious shine and glow...
Oh, Stars, I yearn for thy returning show!
