Half a Moon and One Whole Star

Up above the earth so far
Hang half a moon and one whole star
Hang one whole star and half a moon;
Nighttime will be coming soon.
And while a young girl sleeps, nighttime deepens in vivid harmony all around her—in the woods and garden, on the ocean, in the city, and on the porch, where her parents sit.
