"Summer Stars" is the second song of Elinor Remick Warren's song cycle Singing Earth. The song cycle sets the poetry of Carl Sandburg.
by Carl Sandburg
Bend low again, night of summer stars.
So near you are, sky of summer stars,
So near, a long arm man can pick off stars,
Pick off what he wants in the sky bowl,
So near you are, summer stars,
So near, strumming, strumming,
So lazy and hum-strumming.
