Treasure Island

Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Starry Starry Nights


As the night falls gently on its knees
From the Sun turning her shadow keys
On the prairie and over the meadows
Silhouettes of deep jagged furrows
Masquerading as recessed alcoves
Souls awake in droves and droves
Nocturnal feet spring up to actions
Eyes wide as the moon’s reactions
Darkness not still, the artist good will
Finishes the last strokes with his skill
Completes the nightscape on the easel
Starry starry nights exceptionally gleeful
As the night falls down on its knees
The harvest moon appears at ease

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
