On that starry night, as I sat on the open balcony
Of my own pigeon home, so cosy
I saw, mesmerization, O pure adoration
How beautous was this great attraction!
A blanket of stardust, a black one full of stars
Faced with it, so trivial seemed my scars
Life itself seemed so mysterious
And so full of grace so imperious!
As I watched with wonder, came running down my cheeks
Those tears, seeking their way out of their creeks
Merciful must be the high Lord
None knew why he did create a world so haggard!
Somewhere, thought I, must be an abode
There, sing the fairies, an eternal ode
While switching on and off the blinking lights
Of life and death, such must be its sights!
On that starry night, living seemed a must
A travel from a forgotten place to an unknown one
To live simply with the wills of just
Shall someday give me the high stature of the great swan!
