Night skies here are truly amazing,
stars so bright one can’t stop gazing!
They look so near
they are so clear

Billions in the Milky Way
like glitter spread in a spray;
Like diamonds tipped from an angel’s tray;
Guide vessels safely on their way!

The moon is so large and bright,
One can see as if in daylight;
Could touch it if I had some height;
Its majesty is a grand sight!

Tides rise and fall;
Prawns spawn to its call;
Different moods in people it raises;
Our month is marked by its phases.

Yet clouds can obscure
making stars seem fewer;
Some rain-filled and dark
make the sky so stark.

Clouds are quick to come and go
more dramatic than any soapie show.
Each night offers unique sights
regardless of our worldly plights.

Use that sky as your example
as this life wanes and waxes ample.
Whether good or bad it will change soon;
We are not so different from that moon!
