"Star Light, Star Bright--"

Star, that gives a gracious dole,
What am I to choose?
Oh, will it be a shriven soul,
Or little buckled shoes?

Shall I wish a wedding-ring,
Bright and thin and round,
Or plead you send me covering-
A newly spaded mound?

Gentle beam, shall I implore
Gold, or sailing-ships,
Or beg I hate forevermore
A pair of lying lips?

Swing you low or high away,
Burn you hot or dim;
My only wish I dare not say-
Lest you should grant me him.

Dorothy Parker was a one of kind woman and poetess. An incredible imagination to project great rhyme and subject matter. Sometimes with a poetic, cutting edge satire and thank goodness for that. Thank you Dorothy Parker and sleep well. Sleep well.

Sleep well good Dorothy. Sleep well. For you were one of a kind. And thank you. You are Heaven's gain.

Another delightful poem. Dorothy Parker's work is among the best as far as I'm concerned.

A beautiful poem by the witty and acerbic but always brilliant Dorothy Parker. A poem displaying her feelings, hopes and desires also her feelings of a loss. A magnificent and brilliant woman of her time. Sleep well good Dorothy and thank you.
