The theater that abides the night
plays movies with those points of light--
those stars, blue, white and red.
For they are spheres just like the sun
yet very far away;
they flicker till the night is done,
then wink out in the day.
O flick of star in velvet sky,
the firmament your screen;
a cosmic movie for the eye
in Heaven so serene.
Yet now and then a cameo
of planet in the frame,
or shooting star that steals the show
with atmospheric flame.
And if we point our telescope
into your screen so deep,
we find a comfort and a hope
that we can always keep.
When clouds depart and night is clear,
a flick is there to see;
look up when all those stars appear--
admission still is free.
