Poems about
Our Natural World

By Josie Whitehead


By Josie Whitehead

King of the Night

King of the Night, ruling alone,
*Ensconced upon your *astral throne,
     With starry servants, shining bright,
     You chaperone us through the night.

Unlike the sun, with burnished beams,
Your silvery shaft now gently streams,
     Awakening creatures of the night
     Who, during day, may shrink from sight.

King of the Night, with fingers cool,
Embracing meadow, village pool;
     You safeguard humans as we dream
     With lustrous lights that gently beam.
