The World Ended On This Day

‘How wondrous this is!’ thought the gull amazed
but the wonder made him frown.
For each that fell, none replaced
And stars kept raining down.

The only lights were those of ships.
The stars have ceased to gleam.
And the ocean knew that they were gone,
For their reflections were unseen.

When the stars died, the scarecrow wept
over dry fields brown and dull.
“What’s become of the crops I’ve kept?”
Asked scarecrow of the gull.

(Jan '93)
