the quarter moon sighed softly,
watching children sleep deeply.
will he ever get to play
hide and seek with them all day ?
the sun yawned, ready to fall
after watching concert hall
she didn't want to wake up late,
putting all in grumpy state !
the stars are quiet tonight
listening to sounds, so light
a wish, prayer, poet's words,
to sparkle long dreary roads !
