Song of the Northern Light

Song of the Northern Light

In the dead of night I stand alone

With the air as cold as a stone

In a silence so deep

Like the world is asleep

And the day will never again be shone


Then the silence is broke

Yet not a whisper is spoke

And there’s a light in the northern sky


And I know why I came here in days of old

And stand on this hill in the midnight cold


Spellbound I stare

At light born from heaven’s own flare

As I watch the winds of the sun


Then the night again dims

And the cold creeps back in

And I wander off, sleep I no longer will fight

Till I once again feel the sound from within

And hear the song of the northern light

    OMG! the other one forgot to mention how much "we" liked your poem.  I don\’t and won\’t speak for her (laughing)…but I can really picture you standing there beneath the light show, your words bring that other dimension (no not a third, but perhaps a fourth, you know, the dimension of feeling) to your photograph.  Beautifully written!
    Oh stop…I was getting ready to mention that…sorry, she keeps poking me in the ribs…the you managed to get the perfect pinpoint stars, clear and calm amongst the glorious lights is amazing.  Thank you for sharing this Steve
    hugs from me (I don\’t and won\’t hug for her!)
