Watchman of the Night

by Lucas Fili


Delightful is he who lights the night,

Laughing playfully from his great height.

He gazes wide-eyed down from space,

A smile across his round, full face


In my window, his gleaming light streams.

On my bed lay bright moonbeams.

He gives the field a bright, silvery look;

Then turns his eyes to the bubbling brook.


He invites the wolves to howl their song,

And wakes the bats to hum along.

He shimmers and shines like milky pearls,

Tucking covers ‘round dreaming boys and girls.
