My Unattainable Star

Poem By Warren Chan

Star light, star bright,
The most beautiful star in my sight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
To be with you for just one night.
To shoot through the sky in an endless flight,
To bask in your grace-
Yes, just one night.
But unfortunately you are but a star in the sky
And no matter how hard I try and try,
You’re still a star-
In that yonder sky.

Comments about My Unattainable Star

its like a little expensive peice of chocolate wrapped in gold. its small, sweet, makes you think, and its something to savor..
The comments says it all. Are these poems any short of the great, celebrated poems? Not in any way. In more than a few aspects, i think poems like this is better than the classic ones. man, I wish people would say things like this about my poems.
Hey~! i like how this poem is short, and it's awesome! :)
Very sweet and simple that makes it seem like such a sweet romanticsm poem. If you put this poem in the middle of that of Blake's, I wouldnt tell the difference. =)

A sapphire brighter than the Sun,
With stars that sleep in clouds above,

The Rose withers
every petal vein where red beauty flourished

There’s an invisible man right next to me
