There are stars beyond the stars we see,
And boundless are the paths they dance,
Through forests full of winking eyes,
Reflecting sunsets on the moon.
There are stars beneath the stars that shine,
Reflections of an inner sun,
Where firebirds rise from the ash,
In your deep eyes that search for mine.
Could I reach up with outstretched hand,
And pluck a brilliant from the crown,
A diamond strung from topmost branch
Of the world tree’s canopy,
I’d set it in your hair, to light
The darkness in the coming night.
