Stargazing on a night so dreary,
wishing, wanting, waiting, weary.
Two streaks of light go dazzling by
I'm drifitng off as they catch my eye
I make a wish on fleeting star
To tell me where our happy days are
I made the wish, but then I saw
The gleaming metal, cold and raw
A wasted wish, a broken vow
I wonder where you are right now.
At least this thing I know is true
I am much sadder when not with you
Today's Poem of the Day was brought to you by Lyric of the Day #15, as always brought to us by user jeff4122. The song is called "A New England" by British musician Billy Bragg, and the lyric is:
"I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
Is it wrong to wish on space hardware?
I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care"
