Stars In The Night - Poem by Michael Stevens

like glittering bits of broken glass
like dew thats scattered on morning grass
through the black night we look upon
to see the twinkling eyes of heaven drawn
and to fortunate seers that peer from far
behold the might and glory of every star
where they sail away in the ink blue abyss
and into a land of dreams and bliss
but one has to be careful not to get lost
or they will pay the ultimate cost
which no type of magic can ever forgive
because to stay in dreams you forget to live.

    Truly an enjoyable poem right from the first line. Even the e e cummings structure enhances the content. Read mine - Who Am I -
