    Such a beautiful poem, all about nature and the skies.
    The shows of nature from the moon, stars, sun and skies are
    so beautiful and can not be compared to anything else.
    Thank you for this beautiful description in such a great poem.

    Who is this tricky lady who entices and disappears as quickly as she comes? ? Let us ask her not to be so fickle and linger for some more time! Beautiful! ! (Report) Reply
