Night Treasures


Night conceals
Many mysteries
Like a deep cave
Hiding surprises

Hibernating grizzly
Comes at you roaring
As you go after the
Precious stone he's keeping.

Many a creature asleep
Life's at a standstill
Predators prowling for prey
An occasional hoot of the owl.

Dark night stores
Diamonds in the sky
Many treasures're in store
For the curious eye.

    Nighttime is the right time is a very famous saying. Under the dark covers
    of night nature plays out many roles. Animal plays hide and seek. Stars
    come out and shine like diamonds to take a peek. Just beautiful. (Report) Reply

    A philosophical verse on night tide, it's a dark cave of Nature with ghosts of vice and angels of virtue playing their parts, I liked it sir. (Report) Reply

    Night in its beauty is a fine phase indeed with day in its honest state passing to us the very spirit of a life.
    Night`s treasures are countable whereas day itself is a treasure to reckon with.
    A fine write sir.. (Report) Reply

    During night, the firmament is seen studded with sparkling diamonds and Night's treasure chest will be full of mysteries! Nice description of the night! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
