A star is an eye

December 16, 2007
By Alexis Mitchell, Borden, IN

A star is an eye,

of a yellow old man,
who looks
with radiant eyes
at his grandchildren.

Full of spite,
that twinkles in the eye,
as it shines in the night sky.

He tells of old stories,
advice to guide us
A bright Polaris
leading the way

But as the light flickers,
so do the eyes,
of the old man
as he dies.
