VERSES ABOUT A CLOSE ENCOUNTER
                    SAILORS OF THE SUMMER STARS


I travel far, he said, I travel far.
I am a sailor of the summer stars.
I bring you treasures in my shining jars.
I am a sailor of the summer stars.

She said, I saw you, mounting from the sea,
I did not know you had come for me.
Once, outside my window,
I saw you flying in the sky.
Your pearly vessel signalled to my eye.

He said, let's go now, to the landing place,
All our ships are leaving, voyaging to space.
O, come, let us travel, let us travel far,
And you'll be a sailor of the summer stars.
We shall leave a message in my shining jars,
Gift from the sailors of the summer stars.
