I stepped into the chamber of the night
And ere I focused on its starry sight,
I heard the chopping of a copter’s blades
Advancing, not the sound of when it fades. 

Before my turn could reach the sound, my eyes
Were won, and ears were lost, by night’s surprise –
A meteor flashed ‘cross the crescent moon,
Then disappeared into an inky swoon. 

When it was gone, I finished my brief arc –
My ears once more my guide within the dark,
And saw the Christmas lights upon the bird
Whose noisy song had turned me when I heard. 

My melody was then a merry tune,
Since I had relished much this night in June.

                   Both God And Man

One night when sky again caused me to swoon –
Transcending beauty of what God once wrought,
A planet and Orion, crescent moon –
There was a shooting star that blazed – this thought: 

Since Jesus was like us in ev’ry way,
It would not seem unseemly or a quirk
That He gazed at the sky, after a day,
And marveled, too – at His own handiwork.
