Night Skies


Darkness fills the sky. do you know why?
in the country the stars are so bright.
tons of them twinkle like millions of
little lightning bugs flashing their
light at the moon.


in the city it isnt so pretty.
the light of the street lights and buildings
shine oh so bright.
it makes the moon look dull.
the darkness that should be has vanished into nothingness.
you cant see the stars in the sky
for the lights and the smoke rise so high.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
