'The Starlit Sky'


Twilight is dawning in the horizon.

Heaven is setting it’s sights upon you.

Enticing to say the least.


Stars are glistening in the pale moonlight,

Traveling at the speed of light.

A faint noise is sounding

Reviving your ever changing mind.

Lovely shades of light shine upon you now.

It’s only a matter of time

Till your safe and sound.


Still there is a bright light shining in the valley.

“Kaboom“! The moon comes crashing through the sky.

Your night has come to play!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is an Acrostic poem about the beauty of the night. The three words I used are the, starlit, and sky. I was inspired to write this poem because my favorite time of the day is nightfall and when twilight is dawning. The moon and stars are quite exquisite and can create a sense of peace by just looking at them. I also compiled this poem for my College Creative Writing Class. I dedicate this poem to my wonderful Grandparents, who may be gone but are never forgotten. I hope all of whom view this poem enjoy it just as much as I did creating it.

Thank you,
Sybil Tracey
