"Our hearts were drunk with a beauty our eyes could never see." George William Russell

As morning lifts my eyes
I calmly awaken
The sun’s innocent rise
The sweet smell of bacon

One thing I know
Night will fall again
The moon soon to show
Returns like an old friend

Although daytime’s pleasant
Nothing can compare
Night is like my present
Her cooling calm air

As the sky goes to rest
As she lay down her head
She’s looking her best
As she sleeps in her bed

The way the stars shine
When they sparkle and glow
Calm my busy mind
As they put on a show

Open my window
Wave her good-bye
The day has been slow
But I close my eyes

The sky, black like soot
And of course in conclusion
I’d rather set foot
Into midnight’s illusion

I love the cool breeze and serenity that the Florida winter nights bring, compared to the hustle and bustle of day time traffic.

I love the poem, because talks little bit of everything and I agree with comment number one, you are super talented. The part where talks about the "as the sky goes to rest.." I relate with this “ Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you” I love it. this is an Amanzing Poem!!
