Lightly Stepped a Yellow Star

Illustration of night sky for Emily Dickinson poems for kids
A beautiful night sky comes to the Earth like clockwork.
Lightly Stepped a Yellow Star

 
 
Lightly stepped a yellow star
To its lofty place –
Loosed the Moon her silver hat
From her lustral Face –
All of Evening softly lit
As an Astral Hall –
Father, I observed to Heaven,
You are punctual.
