What d’you see?
higher than the trees,
brighter than these earthen lamps
and more glorious than the rainbow
that boasts only of its seven colours?
A million tiny, twinkling stars, bursting into magic,
for tonight, the universe itself celebrates you in fireworks!
Let your heart be merry this festive night,
child, let go of hurt and sorrow,
no fear can touch you tonight,
reality must await the morrow…
Tonight you only revel
in poetry, and,
