by Annette Wynne

I think I'd like to live on Mars,
Or any of the neighbor stars;
I'd look down on the earth and see
How very busy folks could be;
I'd watch them running round and round
Intent on looking at the ground.

If I could build a brand new sky
I would not make it half so high,
I'd hang it on the tops of trees
Where I could reach it at my ease,
I'd climb up through the evening bars
And see the wrong side of the stars.
