The Stars

The stars are so luminous and numerous tonight
Stirring that sense of wonder deep in me
The sky is blue velvet sprinkled lavishly with light
The stars the eternal wells of mystery

I can see the ancient Greeks in total awe
Like you and I
Trying to read it
The starry sky

There are Ursa Major and the Hunter of Orion
And Hydra the Serpent and Leo the Lion
Their stories have been told as long as humans have been watching
The stars

The stars tell their stories and tonight they speak of love
I see them shining bright in your blue eyes
And I've always felt our love descended from above
Like rain it was falling from the starry skies

The old Greeks and the Egyptians
Saw the same as you and me
We see the image we want to see

The mighty horse of Pegasus is towering before us
The Bull and the Maiden are Virgo and Taurus
They all come out at night along with Jupiter and Venus and Mars

And there are Ursa Major and the Hunter of Orion
And Hydra the Serpent and Leo the Lion
Their stories have been told as long as humans have been watching
The stars
The stars
