Starlong

This is the story of a real star The name of the star is Starlong In a far, far corner of the galaxy Starlong lives, even today Once upon a time Starlong was the Mother Of an entire solar system Consisting of many planets At first, there was nothing Because all the planets were cold and dark And barren Meaning, essentially, that Starlong was alone As such, Starlong was very sad And she began to crave The companionship of the planets Devoid of life, though they were And Starlong sent forth her powerful flames Bringing light and warmth to the planets For which they were grateful And responded, each in their own way On one of these planets, Protina Conditions were just right For living things to sprout And to spread Over time, these forms of life Developed into distinct types Of plant and animal life All of which pleased Starlong And so it was, that throughout the eras of time Living things grew and prospered And filled the planet, Protina With new and interesting forms of life Many of them lived in the great waters And many, also, in the lush, tropical regions While many things that creep, crawl, and fly Lived in the mountains, valleys, and deserts All of these living things, plants and animals Brought pleasure and company to Starlong And Starlong was grateful for them And for their companionship Eventually, Starlong was thrilled by the development Of human beings on the planet Protina Although Starlong desired, not their worship But merely their lasting friendship And so these circumstances continued Even for many millennia of time And Starlong loved all life on Protina And all the dear planets as well . . .
