Laughing the Stars


You laughed the stars

Into the sky

And, though clouds cover them

In this moment of despair

With those unquestioned whys

In your bright eyes,

I know your heaven’s there

In the bright spheres of life,

So, while we wait

For the atmosphere to clear

Let me just state

For your weary heart to hear;

You laughed the stars

Into the sky.


Antonia Sara Zenkevitch
