Another way of looking at it.

“If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.”
-R.W. Emerson

I sometimes wonder if the stars
look down at all the people
in amazement
at how many of us there are,
how beautifully we shine,
and how much we light up the earth.

But then I remember
stars don’t have eyes!
Which makes me feel such woe,
But better to be a blind, speck of glow
than a person who never pauses to look,
I suppose.
