Sane and serene
They seem
These lights
From places not there
Where they appear


And, in the north,
I will never see
For myself
What the south has
As its 'show'


The tilt of the earth,
That darkness
We call night,
At best the moon
Illumines


And all can see it,
If, at the poles,
Maybe eightfold
Like the sun
The overhead sun


Yet, midnight sun
Though it is,
Unsetting,
It tends to melt
Rather little


These pinprick cousins
At night
Melt less still,
But melt me,
Melt my heart
