Little Star


Little star, dreaming of the night and sky
So alone living above and beyond

Under the crescent moon,  so peacefully
Little star, gleaming within sight so high
So well known for your love and solar bond
Under the fluorescent lune so calmly

Little star, streaming with bright cosmic ties
A lonesome dove within the wishing pond
Under A quiescent tune sung softly

Little star,  beaming lightly and nearby
A cyclone of trove and heavenly monde
Under the incandescent harvest-moon

Little star, of the holy northern edge
Sweet slumber, under a spiral of dreams

    This is something worth reading. It allows me- the most wonderful reader :) - to choose what I want the little star to be, metaphorically. A star, or, perhaps, a someone. Either way, the word choice is excellent and you have done something many poets can not do- allowed the reader to draw his own conclusions.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
