Places

Twinkle do the stars up high

Lighting up the night sky

They look like lovely places to be

That we all agree.

Do I ever want to go

Traveling in a rocket stow

Wearing a puffy big white suit

Oxygen tank, helmet and boot

Through the vast dark lonely space

Rocket ship being the home base?

Seeing the world with plexiglass eyes

Never having to see sunrise

Or hear the chirp of a morning bird

Never for the breeze to have my soul stirred

No flowers to smell, no fruits to pluck

No soil to have in my fingernails stuck

To raindrops to make me want to dance

No wildflower meadows through which to prance

No trees to climb or leaves to pile

No ocean waves to make me smile

Worst of all no air to breathe

Or fresh produce to feed.

Only on Earth such luxuries

Afford us this life we lease

And asks only that we live best

In harmony with the rest.

So no other planet or star I need

For my human life to lead,

Only Earth is my mother

I admire them but need no other.
