Sunset - Poem by Paige Scott

An angel set the sky ablaze
With an orb of crimson fire—
The smoke that rose was a purple haze
That spread o’er the flaming sky.

Then black was the night, like ashes
Remaining after so long a kindling.
And here and there in tender dashes
Were ember-stars, pale and cold-appearing.

I saw a new angel glide down
And set the moon, like a candle, in the air—
The moonbeams, like a mother’s gown,
I cling to in my memory.

And the warmth of the fire that burned the night
Warmed the hearts of those like me.
And the moonlight lit our hearts with a light
That can only be named as joy.

    Paige in concert with your flowing style and metaphorical application, , , , really powerful almost giving it a Biblical propensity....of course being old school I don't rant on about rhyme and meter as much as I used to, and in this case had I experienced it along with your presentation, , , , it would have been more than I could bear (Report)Reply

    Not bad at all.
    Your vision of nature is much like Wordsworth.
    More abstraction would set it off as a very good poem.
    Some alliteration would make it flow.
    You, my friend, show potenial as a really good poet.
    Keep on trucking.

    Paige I really enjoyed this poem and should there be any way that all the metric verses were as powerful as the first four I couldn't have endured the beauty (Report)Reply
