Ode to a Star

Ode to a Star

There shines a little star 
So far beyond our ken;
A speck of silver bright,
Twinkling and shimmering
On the veil of the night.

There shines a little star –
A lost pilgrim’s lone hope,
Mark of the Lord’s glory,
A tinsel pure, gracing 
The crown of a fairy.

There shines a little star –
Fixed in the firmament,
Soul mate of Nyx and Nut,
A diamond, that needs no
Colour, carat or cut!

There shines a little star –
My confidante sublime,
Balm to my throbbing sore,
Caring for, comforting,
My bruised and battered core.
