A little girl looked up and saw
hundreds of glittering stars
framing a shiny silver moon.
She hopped with glee and went home.
A young lady looked upward too and saw
a big star and two small ones
under a plain white moon.
She was angry and went straight to the bar.
An old woman looked up the night sky and saw
neither the moon nor the stars.
Only dark clouds where they should have been.
She was so sad and quietly sat on a corner of the nursing home.
