Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself/ In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,/ Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.’ - From, When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer, by Walt Whitman
This 12th edition of Poetry Jukebox, curated by poets Maria McManus andIggy McGovern is titled STAR GAZING.
Those twenty contemporary poems are all about the stars, constellations and outer space – charge your imagination and travel into the dark.
