Riding the Sky Herd


In dreams each night, I go riding
Among the silvery stars.
Sitting on a fluffy white cloud,
I circle Venus and Mars.
I bump along the Milky Way,
Astride my marshmallow steed,
Roping a straggling star or two
From the sky herd that I lead.
Through the sky I go wandering,
Across the heavens I fly,
In and out among the stars
Watching the world go by.
