Far Out

Philip Larkin

Beyond the dark cartoons 
Are darker spaces where 
Small cloudy nests of stars 
Seem to float on air. 

These have no proper names: 
Men out alone at night 
Never look up at them 
For guidance or delight, 

For such evasive dust 
Can make so little clear: 
Much less is known than not, 
More far than near.
