Star At Night - Poem by Scarlett Irvine

There is a field that falls with dew
And tiny mice hurry round,
Bearing pitchers like silver slippers
Tirelessly helping these puddles along,
Till lakes be formed
And a water wheel turns

But what of the lost teardrop
Seeping in the ground
Softly hidden in the tussocks
Yay, never to be found
Like the dim deflating petals
Of a quiet fallen star

Topic(s) of this poem: lament

    NICEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
    Yay, never to be found
    Like the dim deflating petals
    Of a quiet fallen star

    But what about... Such a refreshing read. Bittersweet- Bitter in its rightful time, and sweet with an innocent charm. I give it a 10 because the idea alone is of a unique value. (Report)Reply

    Whether dew or a teardrop, both have a magnetic field, but such magnetic fields affect only a few hearts that are not made of stones. The poem is so beautiful, I was completely amazed I am going to share this wonderful poem on the facebook. (Report)Reply
