Orchards of the Sky

Print Share
    I never saw
    The stars so bright
    As these above
    This mountain height.
    They gleam so close
    Within my reach.
    I can almost pick them
    Like a peach
    Or a silver pear
    That hangs nearby
    In dusky orchards
    Of the sky.
    They shimmer against
    The twilight blue …
    Which one shall
    I pick for you?
