‘Silver Night’ by Sheila B. Roark The Society January 2, 2013 Poetry 2 Comments 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.

Reply social media Berkhamsted August 9, 2014 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.
