A Winter Night - Poem by Valerie Anderson

Gazing at the stars in the sky,
How brightly they're shining.
Oh, how beautiful.
The stars in the winter sky.

Snowflakes falling and dancing all around.
White as a polar bear.
Falling upon the frosted grass.
Under a deep indigo sky.

Gazing at the stars in the sky,
How brightly they're shining.
Oh, how beautiful.
The stars in the winter sky.

The wolves howling in the distance
Cool, crisp air that bites my tongue.
No house or fence
Stands between freedom and me.

Gazing at the stars in the sky.
How brightly they're shining.
Oh, how beautiful.
The stars in the winter sky.

So gaze at the stars in the sky.
Throwing me out into space
I am never coming back.
So remember my sweet face.

Gazing at the stars in the sky.
How brightly they're shining.
Oh, how beautiful.
The stars in the winter sky.

    I love this poem
    the emotion
    the words
    and the images created from them
    I can feel the fantastic air
    even here in Brooklyn
    and I thank you
    for that gift
    keep up the good work
