Pillars of the Night

Midnight sky,
Scattered stars, Moon so high,
All is peaceful, all is serene,
Most beautiful sight ever seen.
Stars shine bright,
Teardrops of heaven light,
The deathly dark oppressed,
By pillars of the night stressed.
Distant light flickers,
The dawning sun snickers,
At the nights last attempt,
To withstand the rising sun's contempt.
Morning has broken,
A new day's first words spoken,
So long, stars of night,
The eternal pillars of the night.
