Star Light, Star Bright

“Star light … Star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
Wish I may, wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight!”

Crystal clear voices
Raise in sing song chant
Five little girls dance
In a circle hold hands
Forever friends sworn

Time passed swiftly
Like clouds glide
Across the midnight sky
The girls scattered
As leaves in the wind

One remains
To stand at night
Gazing up at the stars
Childhood whispers
With a smile
She chants again
