Treasure Island

Sophia White

('90 / America)

A Woven Web of Light


The clouds have scared the stars away
And I am left alone.
So I weave above my head
A thousand of my own.
They run and chase one another
A shining web of light
And with their valiant brilliance hold
At bay the jealous night.

    the woven tapestry of Your poetry is a heaven sent gift. It's like watching the slow motion takeoff and flight of a dove. Each piece of Art is head and shoulders above the crowd. (Report) Reply

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
