In another installment about my joy of poetry, and the sharing of poems I’ve memorized for recital, here is an incredible piece that I put to memory two decades ago. The style may be old-fashioned. It is over one hundred and eighty years old. Regardless, I feel that it begs to be read aloud, with a feeling of love for starry nights and an uptempo joy in the voice.
If you find enjoyment in star-gazing, I encourage you to give it a try. Encourage your inner theatrical side, and surprise others by reading this out loud at your next campfire or backyard gathering, especially on a brightly moonlit night. May you and yours enjoy the passionate quality of this wonderful piece of poetry.
