Ball of fire

As it comes  up high on the hills
It's a sight  that fills you with awe
To see it rise  can be quite  a thrill

A big ball of fire is what you saw
A gem that  gives light  from so far
It's  a sight that fills you with  awe

At night you looked up at a star
That shines so  bright and bold
A gem that  gives light  from   so far

And the full moon dressed in gold
An orb of light in the sky
That shines  so bright and bold

A  gift that  come from on high
To  warm and guide us with its  light
An orb of light  in the sky

This ball of fire that shines so bright
As  it comes up high on the hills
To  warm and guide us with its light
To see it rise can be quite a thrill

    A Terzanelle made up of only one syllable words - That's not easy to do! Congrats on an awesome win!

    I have only attempted one terzanelle before, it is a difficult form! I will say though- you have crafted the form magnificently! I love this, the imagery, flow, everything! Great write :)
