By: Wayne Brown


Blue skies turning pale pink over glassy water’s face

Day draws to its end and darkness fills the space

Lights reflect the dark water, stars are a-twinkling

And the Moon dances full again on its nightly fling


The black sky of night; Heaven’s canvas of light

Stars guide the way, a sailor’s welcome sight

Road maps painted in stars timeless to common man

Multiplied in the thousands like tiny grains of sand


Fears of the darkness calm with visions of the sky

Man stands below in awe of wonders lit on high

A Face of God shown to man; a wondrous celebration

A Sign of Faith, Love, and Hope; eternal salvation


The Moon emits it yellow glow and changes water’s tides

It conjures romantic thoughts as across the sky it glides

The shooting stars, asteroids, and the Northern Lights aglow

Sends God’s message to all mankind; His love is ever so


Then slowly the darkness fades; the sun again is on the rise

The Moon and stars lose their glow replaced by blue skies

Another day begins its trek toward the coming night

And man will stand again in awe taking in God’s Light

      Wayne Brown, thank you for this beautiful poem of the night sky that I love so much and for setting it to a song dedicated to one of my very favorite artist. Each time I hear it I see his genius brushstrokes in my mind...and "I undersand" just a little better. ~ Laura

      Wayne...I can hear the creaking saddle on a midnight ride with all the world above ablaze with the painted stars...reminds me of " A painted ship, on a painted Sea "...You have sung a sweet lullaby, hung with vivid pictures of God's wondrous creation...Thank you, my friend...Larry

      @saddlerider1...I have always been in awe of that poetic song, Ken. I consider it the finest work Don McLean ever turned out. As soon as I wrote this poem, I just knew it was the perfect companion to it. Glad you liked it! WB

      Starry starry night couldn't have been a better chosen poem to compliment your brilliant poem. I look at life as a wonder while I gaze into our galaxy and think of how fortunate we wee humans are to be given life, we are all so unique in the architectural plans and designs of our maker. Born to live and born to die and go back into the earth that we were made from, truly AMAZING my friend.
