by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

If stars dropped out of heaven
Language: English 
If stars dropped out of heaven,
  And if flowers took their place,
The sky would still look very fair,
  And fair earth's face.

Winged angels might fly down to us
  To pluck the stars,
Be we could only long for flowers
  Beyond the cloudy bars.
