Late at Night

By Lauren B.

Walking in the depth of night.

Everywhere I look, I see no light.

The stars are all I have to light my way,

soon I will forget the stress of the day.

You can't hear a thing, there is no sound.

And if there is, it's a lonely hound.

I come to the very end of the road,

it doesn't matter which way I go.

When I walk outside late at night,

Sometimes there is no better sight.

I dare not go inside to sleep,

Because this wonderful night, I want to keep.

A great poem it flows well and your rhyme was perfect. It makes you want to go outside and walk to feel what you have described. Well written

Good job! You describe the night so perfectly. I take late night walks around my house, and you described what I feel as I do that SO good. Keep writing!

This is a beautiful poem. The serenity described makes me want to take an evening stroll myself.
