Among the planets and the stars

You know very well
that there are stars
in the sky
 
and planets
among them.
 
so even though your hands
cannot reach
that high
 
in a dream
you fly happily
over there.
 
you want the moon
to be
the cradle of that dream
 
and you
a child who wanders
through those highs;
 
a child
among those planets
and the stars
 
who knows that the world
is only
a small toy—
 
a truly small toy
in the arms
of
the universe.
