‘Stars from a Different Sky’ by Robert Walton The Society January 11, 2014 Beauty, Poetry Sparks from nearby campfires Might be stars of paradise Glimpsed through twilight’s window Too briefly for surmise Of their height above the pines, Their hues – red, green, or gold -– Or mountains seen but dimly Beyond the forest’s fold.
