The reflections of the things we love
Reside in our hearts,
A descendant of the primordial dove
Within everybody darts…
Dart on, dart on, star of heaven –
Eagle, dove or raven.
The reflections of the things we seek
Reside in our souls,
Be they bright or be they bleak,
Fulfilling their roles…
Play on, play on, lead us there –
We must pay our fare!
The reflections of the things we are
Flicker in our eyes;
An angel, a beast or a solitary star
That never ever dies…
Shine on, shine on, little star –
I know who you are.
