Starry Night

By John I. Blair

While walking down the dark road
Past the sleeping houses
I lift my eyes to the treetops
And look through the winter branches
At the midnight sky.

There great bands of clouds
Are blowing across the moon,
One after another,
Illuminated from within
By the moon’s brilliant light.

Around and through the clouds
The stars of winter shine:
Procyon, Rigel, Sirius,
And countless more.

And as I walk and look
At the clouds, the moon
And all the shining stars,
I have to stop before I fall,
Overcome by glory.
