Song for a May Night
By Marjorie Meeker
From “Songs of Night”

Many mysterious things I know!
I know why the moon is like a moth—
    Do you?
I know why stars are many, and suns        5
    Are few.
I know a place where a star fell down,
And made a hole in the middle of town,
And all the people jumped in. And so—
    Heigho!        10
Other mysterious things I know!
