The Shining Star

The moon stayed all the night
Behind a black curtain of inflaming fire,
While a passing cloud did veil every beam,
And drove away all night’s charm;
Left in the whole sight nothing
But one only shining star
That sent a dim light to the eye.
Then in a jiffy,
I heard a whining voice echoing everywhere,
And as I drew the curtain aside
I still could see nothing,
But as I shifted my eye to the dark sky
I found the only shining star and night’s luster
Have all passed away.
