“The exalted celestial heavens” #poem #poetry #verse

The exalted celestial canvas 
With myriad diamonds embossed 
Arches a vast ceiling on high 
In drapes from velvet fashioned 
Of deep indigo imbued with swathes of purple 
That verily gleams amid the darkness of night 
As countless stars stud the firmament 
With myriad diamonds a’scintillating 
And the midnight hour draws ever nearer
While the mighty heavens 
Now do verily blossom and bloom 
Amid the shadows tenebrous ripening
Cloaked in the shrouds of slumber 
While the world below
From its travails toilsome
Of its repose does partake awhile
Under the canopy sublime 
With glittering lights a’million resplendent 
The way of the dreamers of dreams
Upon their journeying nocturnal 
For to illumine with cosmic glory 
Until morn dawns anew

  1. Your poem says well your emotion
    Got at watching the constellations,
    And in your mind come the chosen words
    To express the beauty of this world.
    Love ❤
    and happy new year!

  2. Yes that’s exactly what happens. I do enjoy walking at night, as well as in the early hours of the morning. The beauty of nature invites one to stand and marvel, then to describe the scene and what it evokes in my mind. Thank you for reading and for your kind words. I’m glad that you enjoyed this poem 💖💖💖
