Catching Stars

I hold my hands out and stretch my arms

to try to catch each one and place them as one of my bracelet charms

One for love, one for luck

One for happiness where I always get stuck

I stick my tongue out, like catching snow

that feeling like there’s no tomorrow


It falls on my head, brings a smile on my face

their light shines bright and leaves a trace

I share them with the fireflies, who are more than willing

paying each one with a shilling


So I stretch my arms and I catch those stars

after all they’ve travelled all the way from Mars
