Smiling sky

Tonight the sky smiled
for all to see for miles and miles
to watch this happen; a glowing grin

tonight the sky smiles
this scene appeared quite wild
out shined the stars viewed from afar

tonight the sky smiled
the eve shown fair: an illuminated picture
oh so rare

we gaze in awe
at this magnificent sight
a wonder raised so high and bright

Tonight the sky smiled
a picture so pure and pristine
hardly a vivid imagination could glean

tonight the sky smiled
assuredly it would seem
this grinning power must be a waking dream

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
