Song that wrote itself in my head when I should have been singing The Ants Go Marching. It stuck so I'm noding it.

The stars come out at night to play, hurrah! hurrah!
The stars come out at night to play, hurrah! hurrah!
The stars come out at night to play,
They chase the sun and the moon away
And they all go marching down
To the ground
To get out of the way pamm pamm pamm

The moon come out at night to play, hurrah! hurrah!
The moon come out at night to play, hurrah! hurrah!
The moon come out at night to play,
She come to call the wolves away
And they all go marching down
To the ground
To get out of the way pamm pamm pamm

The sun come out at night to play, hurrah! hurrah!
The sun come out at night to play, hurrah? hurrah?
The sun come out at night to play,
They send him back till the break of day
And they all go marching down
To the ground
To get out of the way pamm pamm pamm...

(Repeat ad nauseam.)

In the winter hills- night comes
black against the fading red horizon
rising up past my outstretched arms
a million thousand campfires
dot to dot animals and soldiers
swirls and spots and straight line boxes
lights red, green, bright orange
some still, some blinking
some brighter, others fading as the night moves on
left to right, down to up
my neck aches as I try to soak them in
I want to drink the stars- I want to taste that light.
My dreams are up there ,
I am down here on dull earth,
where nothing is ever so bright as that blackness
