Midnight Madness With HER Country Boy Named Chris

________________________________________________________________________________________________

The moon ran ahead of them,
it shook out a lapful of stars

One of them swooped down
into a meadow,
others followed dizzily

Chris had to stare fixedly
at them to hold them 
in their proper orbit

Each time he winked
stars jumped about restlessly
while the moon bumped
up and down 
on the horizon

A rubber ball
in a game of jacks.



The Story of a Country Boy
 
The quote is from
p.197 of this edition.

The author's words
were converted
from prose to verse.

The next Dawn Powell page
is  here.
