Achipelago

ARCHIPELAGO

noun
A large group of islands.



Looking up the archipelago of stars
I wondered where my dreams might founder
(And sink)
As well as which creatures might inhabit those reefs
In the cold twinkling night,
Could I finally hear the astromaid sing?

Black box sent me a couple of weeks ago and I'm hooked. Just love it.
