Summer Stars

Bend low again, night of summer stars.
So near you are, sky of summer stars,
So near, a long-arm man can pick off stars,
Pick off what he wants in the sky bowl,
So near you are, summer stars,
So near, strumming, strumming,
So lazy and hum-strumming.

The rhyming is so perfect and pleasant are the lines ' so near, a long-arm.......the sky bowl'.
What a beautiful star-studded night that he shared with us
