Three songs of the Night: The Shepherd’s Tale, a Star and Stinginess

1

The Shepherd’s Tale:

Fast, from afar

The sun set

Golden streaks touch the skies,

So the sheep bleat with joy

Full bellies rumbling with forage,

In anticipation –

For the night came slowly

With her was the sweet breeze

And all left to worry about

Was a good night rest

2

A Star:

There’s a lone star up the sky,

Glittering feverishly

Bothered by the dark night

And the bright moon shine

There’s a lone star up the sky

From the window you can see

Her struggle, weak and faint

But giving light to heaven

3

Stinginess:

Stinginess is when you hold back,

When the dreams of others don’t matter

And when all that matters is yourself,

So to take all won’t sound bad,

To see someone in want means nothing

And to care about others is not necessary-

Aye! Guide your heart

Secure all that you consume

But do not be stingy with your love
