A shining star, a cute kitten;
All are beautiful, all are bright.
How is one to avoid the beauty
Of the earth?
You cannot say that laughter is bad
For a smile lasts forever, and the world
Spins round and round. Just cry out
Triumphant, “I can shine,” for the pearls
Rejoice and listen to angels play
Their gold harps of melody.
Just is the wind, and the clouds hide the sun.
Love but one petal? No, love’s a whole pasture
Of red roses abloom. For each ray of
The daylight is the smile from each heart.
