One night, I stamped out of the house,
To lie on the grass and stare at the stars.
Now, I know not why I did stamp,
but that night, I did lose my soul.
For I did see, the shooting stars,
hours I watched, and hours I stared,
But to what I next saw, nothing did they compare...
A giant fireball come in close,
A burning basketball,
Flying near, Flying big,
I felt I could have touched it,
Had I but stood and reached,
But no sooner did I see it,
than half an instant later,
It vanished into the darkness of the night,
Taking my soul with it,
and releasing it to the stars.
And now My soul, the stars forever hold,
Never to let go.

Yes, I am in love with the stars.
A glimmering ring They have offered me,
A ring of fire from the sky,
A proposal of marraige,
and I did accept.
And now my soul is forever bonded,
to the stars above the sky.

Very kewl, Insanity, loved the imagery and the fascination with the stars! You sure can drown in them!

Celestial Romance, how divine. I get lost in the stars myself.

Since the ball of fire from the skys,
I've yet to be marveled again,
Excepting one,
Past midnight, til 3 am,
No lights near,
No clouds blocking the skies,
With the sky so crystal-clear,
A thousand times the stars that we see these nights,
Not even an astronaut on the hubble,
Could see so many stars littering the sky,
To count all, in but an centimeter square,
Would be futile...
More stars could we see that night,
Than the rest of time since combined.
The milky way,
In all its beautiful, white, shining glory.

------------------
Life is a struggle for humans to make more foolproof stuff, and for the universe to make more complete fools. I'm here, so the Universe won!

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
'fire star' it means, although bright,
through folklore I look above
through yearless eyes at stars I love;

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
golden stars of fire, of ire, of light,
where elvish dreams doth rest
above rimming moon shining acrest;

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
'round green trees, 'round the sky,
where midnight masses gather
and sing of things proud and fair;

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
flame in the void, light in darkness
amidst red rocks lifeless
and river glimmering rideless;

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
a river in the sky, a stairway to heaven,
amidst dank pebbles in the stream
as moonlight strikes the land with a beam;

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
in the ancient tongue of Elvish maidens,
from Isildur, 'dark moon'
to 'Queen of the Stars', Elbereth;

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
a remnant of times lost, of old,
of music played by harps, of celestial songs,
the stars which conquer all, still longs;

Nar'el, nar'el burns this night,
Nar'el, nar'el burns this night.
