Starlight in My Tresses

They would appear it was close to the hour, I waited holding my breath; Millions I see, the waves upon the sea, To unfurl the view ahead. The playful wind thumped on my shoulder, Under their freezing touch I shivered; They came, stars in herds, Showers of silver descending on the water. Playing over the waves they spread Their glitter all over the sea; On a frosty cold night, a crystal silhouette night, They spy, their impish eyes on me. I stepped into the water, In my tiny hands to gather Silver dust sticking all over my dress; As I return with starlight in my tresses. ..

    Such an enchanting read. With an experience like that, you wouldn't need those shampoos that promise really shiny hair! Kidding aside, thanks for sharing this, I enjoyed reading this very beautiful piece.
