A Blanket of Stars

I wrote this in English class. Try reading it aloud if you want to, as we were focusing on using certain sounds. 
Enjoy!

Lay back your head
To stare at stars, long dead.
The grass a pillow, the grass your bed.

Whirling and swirling
And churning,
Dizzying

Stars so high,
Every night, they
Block out the sky

A big blanket
Billowing over a bed
The billowing blanket, a fabric of stars

To simply look up,
To stars above,
To the flares

Flourishing flairs
Flipping the world
Blinding light, so fair. So far.

We may be alone in the sky,
Alone in the distant stars,
But we be dots on a world

The world a blanket like the sky
An infinite, endless sky
