Brighter Stars | A Poem by Changming Yuan

On a clear Saturday night, there are
Always more stars twinkling in the sky
Why so many of them? Asked my child

Probably because it is warmer in summer
The space is larger

Just as there are also more stars in a man’s heart
When his inner climate is better
