A Starry Sky

All through the night they labored.
Never did they move, nor did they complain.
Their beady red eyes saw only their duty, to shine.
Their glow-in-the-dark green bodies looked like torches,
In the black night sky.
It began to rain, but far up in the darkness,
Beyond the gloomy clouds they still shone brightly.
Dawn put the stars to sleep,
The sun took over,
Pouring his warmth and light all over the green world.
Soon after twilight,
They opened their little red eyes,
And began to shine.
First one,
Then another,
Til they were all twinkling and sparkling,
In the great blue-black sky.

  1. I love the fact that the stars have red eyes. Reminds me of baby albino rats...
