Creative Poem

Inspired By The Night Sky

When I look up at a clear night sky and see the stars, I feel as if a loved one is looking down. As a child, I was taught to wish upon a star, and that special feeling has stayed.

Among The Stars

Published by Family Friend Poems September 2020 with permission of the Author.

I see your star, it's shining bright
amongst the others of the night,
a sight so blessed, as by my eye
your soul now rests in symmetry.

How I love the night time skies,
such magic drifts before my eyes,
these are the times when I aspire
to write what sets my heart on fire.

To write in rhyme my chosen art,
words all coming from my heart,
like my heart they need a beat,
metric poems in measured feet.

Words start forming in a chain,
tumbling round within my brain,
about the love I tried to grasp,
the love no longer in my clasp.

Grief attacks with many spears,
piercing holes for leaking tears,
but gazing at night skies I see
the one lone star I think is thee.

I see your star, still shining bright
amongst the others of the night,
a sight so blessed, as by my eye
your soul now rests in symmetry.

Brilliant! Such a clever and creative idea to use rhyme ends from a famous poem. And then, to produce this superb poem without sounding the least bit contrived is a testament to your skill. You have inspired me.
Ann, I also want to thank you for your kindness and encouragement. It means so much to me.
