Star Light

A sudden calm approaches near,

Erasing doubt and easing fear,

Darkness overshadows all our dreams,

A little hope in moon lit beams.

 

Star light, star bright,

The first star I see tonight,

I wish I may, I wish I might,

Have the wish I wish tonight.

 

I wish for smiles to appear on faces,

For equality in all the races,

For a little magic in every life

and ways to trickle away the strife.

 

I wish for a little something under my tree,

Spot of perfection to some degree.

I wish for a friend who gets what I mean

Who sees through my poet’s screen.

 

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are.

 

Sometimes this thought brings me to tears,

How we have wished upon these stars for years,

How we have made the same wish many times,

How we have sung and sung these same rhymes,

And how and how and how and how,

These wishes remain unrealised now.

  2. Great poem! My only negative reaction reaction was what you wrote about “for equally in all the races”
    For me that sounds to politically perfect. I love when you poem gets absolutely private, about YOU and nothing else. Very well written, almost like a game of words, like a thing for children to read and for adult rot understand. Great!

    • Thanks for the criticism as well as for the compliment.
      I agree. Equality for all races is too much to hope for, but I can’t help hoping it nonetheless. I guess that’s why the wish doesn’t get fulfilled…
      As for the personal thing…I do find my poems more effective when I add in a touch of “me”. Thanks for pointing that out. 🙂

    I like this stance the most but very lovely as usual.
