Night's Magic

A Poem By Emilee // 9/26/2012

My title is lame, I am aware. If you clicked on this even though the title is lame, thank you! I hope you enjoy it, a comment would make my day!
------------------
Night Magic

The crisp clean light fades idly by
The warming orange sun goes down
The once bright earth lies all in shadow

The darkness surrounds thickly, blinding
The silence falls everywhere, deafening

The chirping birds burrow down
The flowers seem to vanish
Darker things claim the time

The owls above ominous, watching
The wolves below lurking, hunting

The darkness covers everything
As magic roams everywhere
If only you could see the wonder

The stars above break through, beginning
The moonlight finally pervades, glowing

New noises claim the darkened air
The source unknown is feared
The beauty there is ignored

The crickets carefully hiding, singing
The coyote’s song to the moon, haunting

What you can’t see is not to fear
The beauty longs to be discovered
Hidden by the handicap of sight

Good job! The description is good. My favorite is the last stanza. I like this poem because of the words and the context--night.
The darkness surrounds thickly, blinding
The silence falls everywhere, deafening

That's another verse I enjoyed.

I actually think this isn't a lame title. I read this because of the title. :) You could, change it to Night's Magic...

I love the sounds of the night, and am very glad that you didn't leave out crickets!

Mmm, beautiful. The title

Mmm, beautiful. The title wasn't lame before you changed it....like Lucy, I read it because of the title! I just didn't get around to commenting.... before you changed it of Lucy's idea. Yes, beautiful job.

"Hidden by the handicap of sight."

That wraps it up wonderfully.

You guys are the best!

Thank you all so much! I think it's awesome that everyone liked something different! This is one of my only poems that I've named, my best friend names them for me, that's probably why I think it's lame!

Hidden by the handicap of sight

That line was utterly brilliant. Wording like that never occurs to me, so it always strikes me as beautiful and clever when other people find ways to describe things like that. :)

I really enjoyed this poem. You touched upon everything that involves night--fear, magic, darkness, beauty. Great job! And the title is perfect.

Great job!
