Celestial Aubade

All night long there were stars
at the bottom of my wine-cup.
I drank, I was drunk with love
and now they're leaving me!

Glorious sunrise at my window
is a poor substitute. Maybe
the stars will come again tonight
if I'm drunk enough.

Maybe I'll learn to see stars at noon
as they say you can from the bottom
of a well. Maybe if I fall into my wine
I'll see them when I look up.

Drinking to forget - or remember.

The stars rarely stay long enough. Lovely plea...

Nicely done! I like the idea of the stars being in the wine...
