Writer in the Stars
By Taher Radhanpurwala, Class 3, Universal School, Tardeo, Mumbai
Some nights I look up at the stars,
So brightly, yet far away.
I know by morning, they’ll be gone,
But I wish that they would stay again.
I’d stare them all day and night,
I’d make myself a chart.
Their shape, their size, their stories too,
I’d learn them all by heart.
For they say our future is in the stars;
It’s written with their light
On the inky blacky empty space
It echoes all the time in the night
Who will be, I want to ask
But they’re much too far away
That even if they answered me
I wouldn’t hear the words they say
Writer in the star
I see them in the dark.
