"The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter—'tis the difference between the lightning-bug and the lightning." ~ Mark Twain


Deep into the pastel night sky

My eyes, wide and wanton, peered

In search of a star

That I could wish upon

 

Then blinking, blinking, 

Through the clouds

Came a twinkle of light

My heart leaped up inside of me

 

I closed my eyes and wished my wish

And came my eyes fluttering open

The star had floated through the cloudscape

There, in the soft clouds, the soft pillowy pink clouds--

I saw the truth

 

Much to my dismay

I am sorry to say

The twinkling was only 

The cold, mechanical lights of a plane
