Far Above Me

- Dinledhwen
A Last Elf Poem

Far above me in the black night sky
A multitude of stars drifted by

But I alone watched this pageant pass
“None now remain,” moaned the tall green grass

“Except for one,” I softly replied
Then slowly I let out a long sigh

While the grass bobbed like waves around me
Further reminding me of the sea

And of my kindred’s sailing from here
Once again my sad eyes fill with tears

So I can’t see the stars drifting by
Far above me in the black night sky.
