“The night was the colour of tar” #poem #poetry #verse

The night was the colour of tar 
It gleamed and glistened 
Amid a riot 
Of bright stars a’glitter 
As white as diamonds a’sparkle 
And a silent breeze 
Cold as ice 
Bitter as tears of woe
Merciless as grief 
Stalked the night 
As it roamed the land
Sweeping unseen
Through the sleeping hamlet
That edged the deserted shore
From the foaming of the seas unprotected
As they danced to the tune
Of the gasps and stirrings a’wheezing 
That roamed the beach
A’gathering speed
By neither mountain nor forest much challenged
At the very bidding of the easterly winds

  1. Wonderful poem expressing your feelings by the sea near a hamlet swept by the wind; a fairytale of lights in the night.
