The Milky Way

it was October though we both agreed
it felt more like September

sat out  after sunset
watching the light fade

bothered slightly (but not
too much) by the midges

me wondering as I always do
how we came to be there

and saying (as I always do)
how the night sky

(what with there being no street-lights)
makes up for the lack of night-life

and how you can clearly see the Milky Way
and how easy it would be to get lost up there

what with all those stars
like trees in a forest
