    Description:
       Latest version of a rhyme that was here before, sometime.

    This project about night skies was to say something like this, but there are lots of angles on it! See "Telescope!", a sonnet somewhere below.

    -------------------------------------------


    Twilight on our mountain
    Slides up from the plain,
    Sneaks all worlds
    Slowly down to our eyes.

    Floating on fire down here
    Is so little, so little;
    Only some land, some sea:
    Where shall we go?

    But into shadow
    And who shall we be?
    But eyes
    On a dark hill,

    And how shall we see
    But by touch
    Of you and me?

      Oh lovely! I'm swept into this content feeling of blissful union. Where hiding and finding shelter are one and the same. Gorgeous tone throughout and I love :

    And how shall we see
    But by touch
    Of you and me?


    Simply spellbinding

    Has a very old world feel to it...now I am curious to see the rest on your list, are they all so proper yet yet incredibly moving?!?!

    Excellent

      I like this, there is a calmness to it, a kind of serenity as the stars appear and it brings in a deeper feeling of connectedness even if only by sight between the observer and the observed.

    However the first stanza feels disconnected from the rest, for some reason it feels like I want to read :

    Twilight on our mountain
    Slides out of the plain,
    Sneaks all worlds
    Slowly down to our eyes.

    As:

    Twilight on our mountain
    Slides out of the plain,
    Sneaks small worlds
    Slowly down to our eyes.

    Dunno, just my 2c :)
