Stars in the sky

Nelly Lantsman 1980 (Tashkent)

Do you ever look at the sky?
Do you ever feel like you could stand up and fly?
Ive been doing it since I was a child
Man, the sky is so expansive and wild!
Do you ever see the starts dancing at night?
Like they’re playing a game and throwing their light.
They dance around me when I look up
They’ll dance forever and never stop.
They’ll be dancing long after I’m gone
I hope they continue to shine for my son.

About this poem

This poem is about the magic you feel when you look at the night sky. It’s the feeling you have of wanting to see what’s out there and also like you’re just a tiny speck in the world
