Stars


Moonlight shining thicker than a blanket of snow upon the grass.
Meeting the dark shadows in stark contrast.

An obsidian expanse glitters like a child's sweet innocent eye.
'Adventures await, ' The stars whisper as I lie.

And yet I know there is far more to the sky than what little I see.
Like the night sky, I only see a limited reality.

But with every precious breath that my Creator supply,
I know among the stars one day I will fly.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
