The Night Sky

Can you feel the cool air?
Can you see the sparkles in the sky?

Can you see the crescent moon?
Can you see the bright star?

I can see the meteor
Creating a bright trail in the sky.

I can see Polaris, the North Star
Hanging thirty degrees in the sky.

I can see Venus brightly shinning
Following the sun to the horizon.

I see the Pleiades
A local cluster of stars.

And I see Orion
Filling the eastern sky.

A soft cool breeze
Blows through the trees
While I sit here watching the stars.
