Many Starry Nights

Starry nights

are for wishing

and for dreaming

they’re for romancing

and dancing


Starry nights

so brilliant and bright

as the stars twinkle

merrily above

I love to watch the show

on windy nights

as the clouds

hide and uncover

the stars one by one

when the moon

seems to be smiling

as the shadows

play with moonbeams

he too likes what he sees


Starry nights

in the autumn

as the north winds

start to blow

leaves blowing through the skies

crunching beneath my feet

clouds sailing through the sky

a cold and harsh sky


in the winter

when the stars

seem like frozen crystals

and even the moonbeams

bring no warmth

still beautiful

as silvery snowflakes

make the black sky, bright


in the springtime

when flowery perfumes

waft on the gentle breezes

the stars no longer in a frozen sky

the moon now glows

as warm as candlelight


in the summer

dancing beneath

the twinkling stars

by moonlight

delighting in the shadows

that flitter here and there

as moonbeams

create shadow pictures

and the wind

whispers through the new leaves

on the tree tops


Starry nights

were made for dreaming

there isn’t a season

that doesn’t provide

a starry night

to delight in

so give me a starry night

my love by my side

and soft kisses beneath

the bright, shining moon

Gypsy, you explain your love for starry nights quite well. So beautiful in some settings! I love this final summary:

"so give me a starry night

my love by my side

and soft kisses beneath

the bright, shining moon." - Gypsy Rose lee.

This poem brings to mind, "Starry, Starry Night" by Don McLean. I've always loved the stars. They're magical!

Beautiful! I love looking at the stars too, trying to find the constellations and just marvelling at the enormity of the universe.

I bought my two 5 year old grandchildren a stargazing telescope each for Christmas and they're fascinated too.
