Star Gazing – Poetry Jukebox


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

Poets Maria McManus and Iggy McGovern present STAR GAZING, twenty contemporary poems on Poetry Jukebox all about the stars, constellations and outer space – charge your imagination and travel into the dark. Poetry Jukebox is an international project and you can find the first in Ireland in The Crescent Arts garden. Click here to learn more about this project.
