‘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. This poem is among the entries for the Society of Classical Poets’ 2012 Poetry Competition.

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.
