Adapted from an 800-year-old Irish poem about a man who sees the woman he loves in his dreams.
You Are Tired
by e.e. cummings
You are tired,
Of the always puzzle
of living and doing;
And so am I.
Come with me, then,
And we’ll leave it far
and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)
You have played,
And broke the toys
you were fondest of,
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break, and—
So am I.
But I come with a dream
in my eyes tonight,
And knock with a rose
at the hopeless gate of your heart—
Open to me!
For I will show you the places
And, if you like,
The perfect places of Sleep.
Ah, come with me!
I’ll blow you that wonderful bubble,
That floats forever and a day;
I’ll sing you the jacinth song
Of the probable stars;
I will attempt
the unstartled steppes of dream,
Until I find the Only Flower,
Which shall keep (I think)
your little heart
While the moon comes out of the sea.

The SWEEPS Field - A Massive Star Survey
The Sagittarius Window Eclipsing Extrasolar Planet Search, or SWEEPS, was a 2006 astronomical survey project using the Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys - Wide Field Channel to monitor 180,000 stars for seven days to detect extrasolar planets via the transit method.
The stars that were monitored in this astronomical survey were all located in the Sagittarius-I Window, a rare transparent view to the Milky Way’s central bulge stars in the Sagittarius constellation as our view to most of the galaxy’s central stars is blocked by lanes of dust. These stars in the galaxy’s central bulge region are approximately 27,000 light years from Earth.
I check my palms, the cracks in the sidewalk
My visions and my dreams, I cross all my fingers
That you’ll be someone who won’t be forgotten
Was that your question? I’ve got the answer
I’ll do a dance to make the rain come
Smile to keep the sky from falling down
Collect the love that I’ve been given
Build a nest for us to sleep in here
You know it’s real
There are no signs and there are no stars aligned
No amulets, not a charm to bring you back to my arms
There’s just this human heart
That’s built with this human flaw
What was your question? Love is the answer
