Starry Nights

Defiled by the city lights,
the stars no longer shine so bright.
I can't try to count their numbers,
or wish upon their falling beauty.
Life is dulled deep in the night
by the bustling busyness,
the need to succeed,
to forget about the splendor,
that we can no longer see.
Nature is destroyed
as industry progresses day by day,
and every night I'm mourning,
because the stars have faded away.

    So much truth shared in your words. It's sad. Thankfully, in North Dakota, we can still see the stars and open spaces. Nice use of alliterations in your poem. Keep on writing! Karen

    Betty this is wonderful pollution and mans regard for the enviorement is sad to say the least. I hope its not too late in correcting it. There seems to be more concern now global warming , etc. I dont no if we will get it back to the way it was , I want YOu and your children and your chidrens children to see the stars. God bless ...Michael
