‘Stars from a Different Sky’ by Robert Walton The Society January 11, 2014 Beauty, Poetry Sparks from nearby campfires Might be stars of paradise Glimpsed through twilight’s window Too briefly for surmise Of their height above the pines, Their hues – red, green, or gold -– Or mountains seen but dimly Beyond the forest’s fold. Lines of jeweled mountains, Pale as moonlit snows, Shining, reaching, soaring, Rows on serried rows, May illumine heaven’s nature When strife and time are done: Heaven is a quest unending, Beauty ever just begun. Robert Walton is a writer, educator, and poet living in California. Featured Image: “The Campfire” by Albert Bierstadt.
