A poem about gazing into the night sky, full of dreams and desire - enjoy!
Of a quiet, peaceful valley,
Bright speckles of light shimmer
And dot the evening sky –
Folks of all ages take lengthy peeks
At their euphoric eminence and sparkling grace,
And marvel at the crisp, glowing, fiery embers.
Above the calm, tranquil lighting
In nearby windows,
And the reverberating glow
Of countless streetlights,
These denizens of the evening sky
Shower love and hope upon millions
With their empathic beams
Of glistening stardust,
Lifting youthful spirits
And warming many satisfied hearts.
Much dreaming and such cherished memories
Accompany their journey
To our magnificent Earth,
As the sun gives daily rise
To these enduring celestial bodies...
