Holding a Star

Updated on January 7, 2010

Twinkle, twinkle little star

Why are you so very far?


In the night sky you are grand

I want to hold you in my hand


But you're far off and way up high

And I can't get into the sky


The best that I can ever hope

Is looking through a telescope


When I do you shine so clear

Then it seems you're very near


I wish I may, I wish I might

Hold a real star tonight


I walked along the ocean sand

I slow. I stop. And then I stand


I look down and on the ground

It was like a miracle I found


Lots of stars are right in reach

I gather starfish on the beach
