EVENING STAR


Though not really a star, the evening star is usually a planet, visible just before dark, during the gloaming or in the east just before sunrise. This is Venus watching the Moon. When I was a young Camp Fire Girl, we used to sit around a summer campfire and sing this song.
Tell me why
the stars do shine.
Tell me why
the ivy twines.
Tell me why
the ocean's blue.
And I will tell you
just why I love you...

  1. A beautiful photo. Nothing like a campfire. My husband built one in our garden and when he died and we sold the farm, my son took every part of the campfire and transported it to their house in town. We still like to sit around and toast marshmallows.

  7. I don't remember you at Camp C'Andy, but one of our favorite things to do as we got older was to hike to the graveyard. Your picture reminds me of that time.
