Poem of the Week ~ March 14: Stars


STARS
Sara Teasdale


Alone in the night
   
On a dark hill

With pines around me
   
Spicy and still,

And a heaven full of stars
   
Over my head,
  
White and topaz
   
And misty red;

Myriads with beating
   
Hearts of fire
  
That aeons
   
Cannot vex or tire;

Up the dome of heaven
   
Like a great hill,
  
I watch them marching
   
Stately and still,

And I know that I
   
Am honored to be
  
Witness
   
Of so much majesty.



Miss Melody Muffin
