Big Sky Event

Nature's most awesome sight,
stars and planets come out,
once in a lifetime experience;
a total solar eclipse.

Stars and planets come out,
birds and squirrels nest,
a total solar eclipse;
an eerie feeling.

Birds and squirrels nest,
leaves hurl over the earth,
a total solar eclipse;
moon shimmies across the sun.

Gliding through the sky,
once in a lifetime experience,
the big sky event;
nature's most awesome sight.
