The Stars of Night

by mandaceehb

With my crayon

I coloured in the night sky

Dark and beautiful 

A royal midnight blue

And when that was complete

I took out my silver crayon

And filled the spaces in between

Patches in the sky

Where the stars would live


The glittering stars filled every corner of the sky

And I was pleased

Until I realised

That the silver crayon was no more

All that was left of it

Was silver dust that had already been scattered across the sky

And the magic could not ever

Be created anymore
