I forget precisely when I wrote the first draft of this wee poem, but it is over 10 years old. It needed a little revising.




Astronomers

Scientists probe remotest galaxies;

     Sky-gazers gawk at Jupiter and Mars:

I tell you, though, this young black woman's eyes

    Could make astronomers forget the stars.

I think he meant the beauty of her gaze can challenge the stars of the Universe. Eyes are the reflectors of the person within. A lovely and romantic poem is how I see it.

interesting in a way if you compare the blackness of her eyes with the universe but that's probably what you meant
