Our house is cold.
And in the night, in the darkness, I find
a tiny hand that somehow escaped the warmth, that crept out from beneath the bedclothes,
a tiny frozen ice-pop!
And as I lie in the dark, little mitt tucked under my arm to thaw,
I think about the darkness, the vast clear coldness that stretches out above this little house of ours,
My mind expanding,
I think about what we saw there tonight.
The Moon. And Venus. And Jupiter.
Held in the skies, so bright
the stars around them retreated out of deep admiration,

Oh my heart...
Did you see it?
