Bucket of Stars

Flung across the universe
To adorn the heavens,
Gleaming are the brightest stars
Each divinely given.
They brighten up the dark skies
And give the heart a thrill.
In every land and nation,
The eye beholds them still.
Although they are very far,
The finger cannot touch,
The heart reaches where they are--
There to caress as such.

A flurry of stars on high
To light the darkened sky.
