In the skies that churn so gently on high
Stars weep, animated by spirits' woe
Against the shroud of black remembered night
They've moved me to wonder since long ago
Oh, Stars, must I leave your heavenly glow?
For seasons flee, as do the diamond skies
And steal away the stars from their abodes
As months and years pass in their clockwork stride
And therefore leave only my wish to know
Oh, Stars, why must we depart on this night,
In this clandestine mantle of twilight?
I dream of gleaming winter in the spring
The beams of light as summer turns to fall
And though new stars arrive in Earth's great swing
The stars we've come to love forgo us all
Must I relinquish your ethereal glow?
Oh, Stars, I yearn for your returning show!
