Walking the Moonless Midnight Sky

From my hedge
To the ledge
I took the route
After the Sun had set
And that night
moon was on rest

The night I walked
Moonless midnight sky
When I slipped out, on the sly

Soon I was
In the midst of stars
Who could imagine
Moonless Night
not being dark

I stepped on floating
Cumulus clouds
Firm but soft
Feet shrouded in down

The Midnight blue
Was a laid out stage
Where I could perform
My dance in solace

There is so much music
In the interstellar space
It was hard to slow down
As I got tired
Hard to keep up the pace

Slowly as time passed
I found myself in that zone
Where night slips into dawn
It was no time to roam

Soaked in dew drops
Glided back to my home
From ledge
To hedge, then window
I landed in my room.

My magical secret,
Is locked up in my heart
Tossed out the lone keys,
Beyond the midnight stars

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
