Don't Follow That Star


Don’t follow that star you always show me at night,
All that glitters is not gold, be careful,
It dwells in dark lands strange unto men

Shrine and home,
To many souls prone,
Don’t follow that star you always show me at night.

So often that star appear
Glittering in the eye... Cold fear!
It dwells in dark lands strange unto men.

Lurking therein
Darkness! Camouflaged, shining,
Don’t follow that star you always show me at night

For night is
Strife and wrath
It dwells in dark lands strange unto men.

Lest it grips your soul,
Follow that little man within your core
Don’t follow that star you always show me at night
It dwells in dark places strange unto men.

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,
