A Short Poem for the Stars

by WinnyWriter


Magic starlight in the sky

Glitters gracefully, and I

With wonder upward gaze and sigh

For the beauty of the world.

Hello! I am AkuRashomon and I am here to give a comment/review. The title gave me interest because I love the stars and literature about them.

Magic starlight in the sky

Glitters gracefully, and I

With wonder upward gaze and sigh

For the beauty of the world.


I love it, it is short and simple. This reminds me of the old poetry I read in my English class. The pattern is also AAAB. Expressing a star to be a magic starlight is a great opening for the poem. I imagine a person staring right into the sky, admiring the stars that shine in the night. I want to write about the stars now, thanks to you! Thank you for sharing your poem!

This is such a beautiful poem I feel like this is one of those cases where less is more.
I am honestly a fan of astronomy so I love it!!!
It's abstract in my opinion which is awesome!
I like the last two line the most
With wonder upward gaze and sigh
For the beauty of the world.
IT IS SO POETIC WHICH IS BEAUTIFUL!!!
I look forward to seeing more poems by you!
This poem makes it obvious you have a gift for poetry!

its a cute little poem. Not much to write about, but the words look like they are carefully thought out. It looks more like a haiku without proper syllable count. I do like stars! I honestly think that the ending is a little bit off, since it is the only verse without a rhyme, but that's just me. I don't read much anyways. Good job, fellow author!

I wish that it was bigger, but still a concise good read.

The stars are golden. It's beauty can't be tracked. This poem demonstrates that in a simple and meaningful way.

It's a really well done, short poem.
