Golden stars tell the story, of still, night's glory, Twinkling and flashing, in the hours of dreams, Long after the dazzling sunset, a black cherry, Full moon's lovely as it's pouring, satiny cream. Twinkling and flashing, in the hours of dreams, And filling the night with a kind of black magic, Full moon's lovely as it's pouring, satiny cream. The smooth lakes and soft moon flowers gleam. And filling the night with a kind of black magic, Lavishing peace underneath a celestial shroud, The smooth lakes and soft moon flowers gleam, As a whispering wind blows, and birds sing loud. Lavishing peace underneath a celestial shroud, Long after the dazzling sunset, a black cherry- As a whispering wind blows, and birds sing loud, Golden stars tell the story, of still, night's glory!

"Golden stars tell the story, of still, night's glory!" "In the still of the night" one of my all time favorite love songs -- by the original Platters of course! Beautiful write! Thank you. Correction! "Still of The Night" was The Five Satins, another great group.

Thank you so much for the joy evoked by your comments, Joe. What's not to love about the Platter's hit song? I love it, too! I hope your weekend is nice. :)

You have expressed the beauty of night so skillfully, I really like 'pouring satiny cream' and 'soft moon flowers gleam', very descriptive~
