O Radiant Stars That Shine Above - Poem by ANDREW BLAKEMORE

O radiant stars that shine above
And fill the evening sky,
Please offer me a sign of love
Or else just fade and die.
Cast down on me a beam of hope
To which I may now cling,
For lost am I and cannot cope
Glad tidings may you bring.
Shine on for me until the dawn
When sunlight shall appear,
I long to greet the rising morn
And see her standing here.
Within the stars my fortune told,
But as for now the night grows cold.

    You paint the yearning in your heart so evocatively in this radiant poem about starlight and mystery and the magic of night. Van Gogh's famous painting 'The Starry Night' comes to mind. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
