Starlight in My Tresses

Written by: gautami phookan

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. ..
