I like this - the imagery - I like writing that makes me think - and now I am wondering if those last two lines allude to dreaming or death. Wonder if you were aware that your last two lines posed that question. It's like a tiny riddle. Good Job!

Now this I like! Try expanding it a bit more, or having it be the prologue of a short story.

This poem seems so vivid. You start off by stating that although the night seems long and dark, the Earth is only resting for a while, which adds a peaceful note to the poem. And then you go on to describe the stars that "dot the sky above" and "hold you in their precious keep". These two lines are especially beautiful. For me, it conjures an image of someone gazing up at the sky in awe at the shimmering stars that seem so far away.

The poem is ended with the lines "So close your eyes and come with me, I'll show you eternity". It sounds as though the stars as beckoning you to the world beyond their sparkling reach.

Excellent work here!
