stars in the night a star light

he drew starring up to the sky
only he knew what he could see
millions of stars
like dots on a polka dress

his night wasn’t dark
like the one he saw later
now he was one with his craft
like a child with his naive heart

made a lonely sky look as a crowded bay
some shining some dim some as firefly’s
swimming in the dark blue night
his thoughts and happy tones painted yellow
sitting on a thrones royal blue robe

van gogh wasn’t a painter
he was more a dreamer
cause he saw a night with stars
and a star light
moon shone on him with a hue and a smile

he was painting a starry sky
for he had loved her once on a night
when the blues mixed with star dust
and kisses mixed with the moonlight
all the stars and their light was their abode

moon shone on him like a lovers smile
for he had seen his star and her starlight
he painted a starry night as her tribute
we love u van gogh you created a world
with a night and stars which has no dawn
spinning over centuries in every lovers mind.

    Starry starry night
    Paint your palette blue and gray
    Look out on a summer’s day
    With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
    Shadows on the hills
    Sketch the trees and the daffodils
    Catch the breeze and the winter chills
    In colors on the snowy linen land

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    How you tried to set them free
    They would not listen they did not know how
    Perhaps they’ll listen now

    Starry starry night
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
    Swirling clouds in violet haze
    Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue
    Colors changing hue
    Morning fields of amber grain
    Weathered faces lined in pain
    Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand

    For they could not love you
    But still your love was true
    And when no hope was left inside
    On that starry starry night
    You took your life as lovers often do
    But I could have told you Vincent
    This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you

    Starry starry night
    Portraits hung in empty halls
    Frameless heads on nameless walls
    With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget
    Like the strangers that you’ve met
    The ragged men in ragged clothes
    The silver thorn of bloody rose
    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow
    Now I think I know
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    How you tried to set them free
    They did not listen they’re not listening still
    Perhaps they never will

    An image of depth deserves a write of depth – damn good on you for giving the painting its proper due….
