THE FALLING STAR, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: I saw a star slide down the sky
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Stars

I saw a star slide down the sky,
Blinding the north as it went by,
Too burning and too quick to hold,
Too lovely to be bought or sold,
Good only to make wishes on
And then forever to be gone.
