Still That Star (a poem)

There is still that Star, way beyond our reach.What tales it could tell, what lessons teach!How small we must seem in our tiny orbSo swift to despair, so quick to absorb The petty tyrannies surrounding us allWhen what we really need is to fallDown on our knees in delighted aweBefore that great light which the shepherds saw.Century after century on a certain nightWhat ever we believe in, we all have the rightTo forget this world, and as one to stareAt that wondrous light still shining there.Mimi Evans Winship(Read Full Post)
