     It's how the stars are lit at night
     and how the dew drops glisten
     How evening shadows mock the light
     and it's how the silence listens

     From the gentle sway of trees
     that bid such fond adieu
     Songs in a summer breeze
     a voice so clear, so true

     The glory of such symmetry
     so more than fills the eye
     To the beauty of such poetry
     this hopeful heart draws nigh

     In natural peace all love is born
     To live and thrive each blessed morn

This is such a beautiful poem Charlie. It is deserving of the honored of POTW! Congratulations my friend! This is the third day I have had no list on the side to choose from at PS. They said it should be fixed but it is not fixed. I can't even click on the member area to try and see what the problem is without the list. I am trying to be patient until they fix the glitch. Have a great weekend. Connie

Your command of flow and rhyme of verse leaves me sitting here in stark admiration of something that might have survived a history untarnished, yet apropos for whatever today one might wish for. Excellent.
