The lonely little star, the tiny child of a star, twinkled in the empty sky all by itself.

The child of a star asked, with a voice like a bell, ‘God of the Stars, why do you leave me here by myself in this dark night sky?

I have no way to talk to the other stars, or to  show each other our light.’

The God of the Stars replied ‘Look very carefully’.

And so, the child looked very hard. So hard that her eyes could have fallen out. 

Days later, off in the distance, a tiny twinkling star could be seen.  ‘I see one’ said the child of stars, ‘but its all alone like me’.

The God of the Stars replied ‘Look very carefully’.

And so, the child looked very hard. So hard that her eyes could have fallen out.

Hours later, off in the distance, a myriad of twinkling stars could be seen.



The God of the Stars replied 'You can see them if you look really  carefully. The sky is endlessly connected. Just try, and you’ll  see even the faintest of lights’.

"You might see nothing but pitch-black darkness right now. But you have to keep trying and trying,  looking into the dark world. And off in the distance,  you’ll surely find some light. And when you find a star, they’ll surely find you, too. And you’ll shine light on each other. And then your  world will no  longer be pitch-black."

O goddess-born of great Anchises' line, The gates of hell are open night and day; Smooth the descent, and easy is the way: But to return, and view the cheerful skies, In this the task and mighty labor lies. To few great Jupiter imparts this grace, And those of shining worth and heav'nly race. Betwixt those regions and our upper light, Deep forests and impenetrable night
