Stars Count



Every night I count the stars 
Every night before I sleep 


Every night I take a basket 
Every night to count the stars 


In the day, it is hard to see them 
So every night I count the stars 


Last night a star went out, one out of ten 
Twinkle, twinkle a star went out 


One less in my basket count 
I lost a star in my garden twinkle 


My lights went low, low and twinkle dim 
I lost a star, my twinkle star 


Then today I found a new star born 
A new star twinkle, so bright and tender 


Every night I count the stars 
On this day I am back to ten 


Twinkle twinkle in my garden twinkle 
Every night I count the stars

  1. lovely........so often what we think is lost is replaced by something brighter.

  2. really a nice job here. Love the philosophical couplets, and the sentiments within each of them and then the overall sentiments of the piece as a unified grouping. Thanks for sharing.
