Sailors of the Summer Stars

Sailors of the Summer Stars

“I travel far,” he said. “I travel far.
I am a sailor of the summer stars.
I bring you treasures in my shining jars.
I am a sailor of the summer stars.”

She said: “I saw you,
mounting from the sea.
I did not know you
had come for me.
Once, outside my window,
I saw you flying in the sky.
Your pearly vessel
signalled to my eye.”

He said: “Let’s go now,
to the landing place.
All our ships are leaving,
voyaging to space.
O, come, let us travel,
let us travel far,
and you’ll be a sailor of the summer stars.
We shall leave a message in my shining jars,
gift from the sailors of the summer stars.”
