A  Poem 

​"The Stars, the Earth, and the Sun"

"Here's all that you'll ever need, boy", my dad said to me;
The twinkle in his eye was noted affectionately...
"The stars, the Earth, and the sun", he went on quite emphatically;
"If you follow your heart, and remember these things, you'll always feel free!"

I'm nobody's fool, by any which means;
Still, I thought this which he said amounted to a hill of beans.
Any psychic can tell you your aura's rather vital;
I had to listen to my father, though, since he's my idol.

As an astrologer passed I queried, "What do you find";
"To be of the utmost importance.., so please do speak your mind".
As she mumbled something about Taurus being in Cancer today;
she then blurted, "The stars, the Earth, and the sun - by far is what I say".....

The next morning I took a ride to the sea;
"Isn't the ocean gorgeous?", a seafarer cried out to me.
"Well, it is part of the Earth", I exclaimed under my breath;
Suddenly the old man's words were coming back ~ many years after his death.

If it weren't for the sun I couldn't see this great Earth;
a life in coldness and darkness truly wouldn't have much worth!
Without the stars I wouldn't know my lover's match to my signs;
For Heaven's sake why didn't I listen to dad's lines..!?

Scurrying about to grab for more money seems mundane;
And parties are important but they drive so many insane!
Thinking of simple pleasures, and sharing things that are fun;
I reckon I'll just tell everyone I meet 'the stars, the Earth, and the sun'!
