A Comet or a Star


Perhaps you’ll be a comet, perchance an Eastern star,
A star is there forever but a comet leaves ajar,
The door of maybe, which way, whatever path you choose,
Will you be true or passing, the comet that I lose?

The siren voices call you, the tug of heartstrings strain,
Whatever will seduce you, whatever will remain,
My humble benefactor or the feet at which I weep,
A comet or a star then death when I shall gentle sleep.

Other spheres, other dreams, the judgement of the stars.
But star or comet you remain precisely what you are,
Win or lose, Fate will choose but you remain my bride,
The comet of my being but the star I choose for guide.


Michael Walsh
