Beyond the Starlight Sky

My Dina you’re wiser than wise
Oh, what your eyes can see!
You’re the only one who understands
My curiosity
So please tell me...
Why does the whispering wind
sound like a lullaby?
Is that the magic music
from beyond
the starlight sky?
Why can’t the swallows remain?
Where is the place they fly?
Why can’t I go along
with them
beyond the starlight sky?
If I climb the highest tree
where oh where would I be?
Would I find a place for me
in the land of grand enchantment?
Where do the clouds disappear
when they go rolling by?
I’m wondering about the world
beyond the starlight sky!

I dont know if this is from a song, if it is then that plagiarism and could into serioues trouble. Its really good (if its yours) but its not a Sonnet.

It's funny how you just took the lirycs from DIsney and changed a word. And people think that it's your original work. Shame on you.

It should be starLIT not starlight using correct grammar but other than that, it's really good.

I totally agree with the previous statement. It makes me want to meet the narrator. A magical and enchanting poem.

i love this one, it asks the questions all our hearts ask about nature but we never really look for the answers

I really like this poem; it's conversational, it draws the reader in, and it's funny and joyful. it could have ended up being a total cliche but actually you've handled it really well while still making it accessible to the reader. well done! id really appreciate if you could have a look at my poetry too. thanks!
