Poetry: Starry Night of Vincent van Gogh


Starry Night of Vincent van Gogh
By Laijon Liu 20100625

‘In sorrow, yet ever joyful’ – St. Paul

Whenever I feel lonely
I would break out of my cell
And go out into the night
To paint the starry sky

The bright stars shining above
Spinning in the spiral torrent
And the waning orange moon
Glowing in her golden flare

The wind gushing its stream
Blanketing the dark blue hills
The village houses glittering
Resting in silence and peace

The spire of a small church
Piecing into the winds
And a giant cypress ahead
Blazing up its green flame
To console the flooded sky!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
