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
the universe.
