See the stars amidst the grass
Please tread lightly as you pass
Do not disturb them as you go
Lest they lose their brilliant glow.
They lie like flowers on the grass
As they fell from Heaven in eons past.
Perhaps, some angel?s silver tears
Shed for someone weeping here
And scattered by some unknown hand.
Perhaps they touched that saddened heart
And made it feel a tiny part
Of the greatest cosmic art,
The music of the spheres.
