The midnight sky was clear last night,
Full moon illumined the ground;
The heavens were a wondrous sight—
Sparkling stars shone all around.
I stood there gazing at the sky,
Entranced by their steadfastness;
A shooting star sailed quickly by,
But changed not heaven’s vastness.
Star-studded heavens like forever are—
My life as brief as that small shooting star.
