Up in the inky, velvet sky
on this cold winter night
the sky is lit with diamond chips
that glow with spirit light.

Not far away from twinkling stars
a full moon brightly shines
sending down its silvery rays
that light up snowy pines.

Sleeping trees wear ermine robes
provided by the snow
that fell like cotton from the sky
a little while ago.

It is a night of perfect peace
that’s bathed in silver light
provided by the moon and stars
that glow this winter night.

 

Sheila B. Roark is a poet living in Euless, Texas.

    Hmm it ooks like your website ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had writte and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for novice blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
