Ah, Moon and Star!

Ah, Moon and Star!

Ah, Moon and Star!
You are very far
But were no one
Farther than you
Do you think I’d stop
For a Firmament
Or a Cubit or so?

I could borrow a Bonnet
Of the Lark
And a Chamois’ Silver Boot
And a stirrup of an Antelope
And be with you Tonight!

But, Moon, and Star,
Though you’re very far
There is one farther than you
He is more than a firmament from Me
So I can never go!

Poem Ah, Moon and Star! - Emily Dickinson
