Looking up at stars isn’t fun like it used to be,
Too often I tip over in fright…
Skies aren’t as dark in this, the country
Much less visible the star light.
Cassiopea and Orion’s Belt
Used to shine brightly overhead…
The Big Dipper I rarely could find,
Despite directions I had read.
Too many lights in this neck of the woods
Reflect up in this part of town…
Not that it is a big thing for me,
But not seeing stars
Brings me down!
