As the day slips behind the hills
On the far- off horizon
Along with its glorious lamp
And all the bright sunshine
The Earth looks down wearied
Exhausted from the day's labour
All hustle and bustle being stopped
The world goes to rest in sleep
But those who can keep awake
Shall watch a sublime tableau
Of celestial bodies above the earth
In the star-studded blue sky
.Stars - those tiny diamonds -
Scattered from end to end
Play hide- and- seek all night
Twinkling in their endless plaground.
Ever watched the night sky -
That expanse of eternal mystery?
Ever sighted the shooting star -
Believed to be granting a wish?
With child-like wonder and pleasure
I gaze at this immense treasure
Feeling blissful, serene and uplifted
Under the spell of this divine splendour!
