Solution without words by David Andriana.


The star gazer
Can see you and me
In a brilliant stary night
The moon fiances in the sky
So far these lights
The star gazer is the poet from the dreamers
The writers
He lets the lights shine on me
So we can meet over the seas
And keep our eyes open
To see the wonders around
