Off from out of this Earth,
Away from the moon
Releasing embers of energy and passion
So passionate it makes me blind,
Once and again it shined,
Twinkling, shooting beyond Mars.
So elegant and eerie,
Out of question theory.
A dark beauty dressed with diamonds,
This I can't describe,
Such a beauty at night.
What a delight!
Such an unknown mystery,
One of the greatest in history.
Oh shining star,
So high, so far,
At a far height,
What do you tell me now?
