 Stars come down to earth when the chilly winds from Siberia descend to the tropics, Santa riding on a sled of gifts, reindeer in cadence with tingling bells;  

Stars come down to earth with songs of welcome and praise, children from door to door knocking, singing, and wishing for gifts and good tidings; 

Stars come down to earth with the first rain in May, releasing from their abode cicadas and crickets that fill the trees with songs;  

Stars come down to earth as summer ends, monsoon fills the rice fields, pools grow to ponds, rivers wake up with frogs croaking, fish bubbling; 

Stars come down to earth as grains turn golden in October, harvesters in prayers and songs in thanksgiving and merriment;   

Stars come down to earth for every tree planted and nurtured, farmland in sustainable productivity, wasteland rehabilitated, wildlife preserved for posterity; 

Stars come down to earth in every child born, in every beloved remembered, in whispers of comfort and encouragement; 

Stars come down to earth in every achievement that affirms people's faith, tradition and values, of their collective voices of unity and freedom; 

Stars come down to earth for every armistice, summit, forum that seeks end to hostilities, bring international cooperation towards peace and order of humanity; 

Stars come down to earth after a storm has passed, reminding of human folly,
and stirring man's resolve towards goodness, wishing upon the stars. ~
