Starlight--By George L. Ellison--England


Stars they glow in the night sky
But they’re not always visible to the eye
When the glorious sun shining bright
Dispels the darkness of the night

As day dawns they start to fade away
But they always reappear at the end of the day
Though I know they are there I just can’t see
Their twinkling lights to infinity

Soon days end it approaches fast
The setting of the sun means nights return at last
Once more stars twinkle for all they are worth
A joy to behold till days rebirth

  7. Dear George,

    I love the way you describe how the stars are always there, even if we cannot see them in daylight. I spent many nights 25 miles offshore in a boat and without the lights of homes and businesses, I could even see the Milky Way. First Venus, then Mars would appear. I miss those nights when there were so many stars that it was hard to pick out the constellations. Enjoyed your poem VERY much!

    Best wishes,

  8. I'd probably get seasick doing that Carolyn but I'd love to spend more time in the country where no lights are present !

    Thank you for reading and replying your comments are very much appreciated

    God Bless
