Celestially Underwhelmed – day 2 of Napowrimo 2015

2 Apr
‘Dad, it’s cold – can we go inside?’
He ignores me, looks up and throws his arms wide
‘Behold! The jewels of the dark night sky!’
‘Good grief.’ I mutter, and resignedly sigh
‘Venus! Mars! Mercury!
Polaris! The North Star. Signpost of the sea!
The big dipper, also known as the plough!
Heavenly creation, take a bow!’
I look up, but I’m not impressed
I’m frozen and I’m under-dressed
For day 2 of Napowrimo. Prompt: write about the stars
