Chilly Night

Chilly Night

written by: Jennifer Goddard



The cold bite of the night
Heightened by the perfume of home fires
All is still and calm
All is damp as the day chills into night
A distant freight train rumbles
Its echo soft and pleasant
Tunneling through the darkness
Touching all for a moment
The blackness of night
For once friendly and safe
Becomes the canvas
For a billion stars
Twinkling through the haze
Oh winter’s night
You shine, and shimmer, and sparkle
I thank you for your gift.
