A Spot of Star Never Erased

I sat on the wall that was not so high
But I saw that star dropped from the sky
It came to me not to the sky
My hands were touched that but
It was not in my hand at all
I tried to count all stars but saw one short
Father called me for sleeping at early night
At midnight he slept before and beside me
I count all those stars again and again but
Repeatedly one short,
Sleep turned me at dark
I was sure that I slept on his chest
And Havens Aroma covered,
my nose and nerves
At dawn I rose early and saw
I was not on his chest,
even he left me alone
in a dark and smoke-
But after washing my hand I saw a
Spot of star at my right hand
It never erased but shine
Even after washed by Soap or Ashes-

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
