A MOURNING STAR...

I have a mourning star that
goes in and out with me,
and what can be the use of her
is more than I can see.

She is very like me
from the heels up to the head;
and I see her jump before me,
when I jump into my bed.

The saddest thing about her
is the way she likes to glow
not at all like proper bright star,
which is always very slow;

For she sometimes shoots up taller
like an india-rubber ball,
and she sometimes gets so little
that there's none of her at all.

She hasn't got a notion 
of how mourning stars ought to play,
and can only make a fool of me
in every sort of way.

She stays so close beside me,
she is a coward you can see;
I'd think shame to stick to nursie 
as that mourning star sticks to me!

One night,
before the moon was up
I rose and found the shining dew
on every buttercup;
but my mourning bright star, 
like an arrant sleepyhead,
had stayed at home behind me
and was fast asleep in bed.



AIXA

Thank you for your comments, I love when we both watch the stars.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
