The Lights in Homes

By Julia W. Wolfe

Along the highways white with snow,
Little beads strung on a thread,
The little lamp-lit windows glow
From dusk till time for bed;
And every shining bead’s a home–
I love to think of it;
The stars above in God’s blue dome
Are not more exquisite.

(1944)

  1. The stars above in God’s blue dome
    Are not more exquisite.

    Nice!

  2. You’re definitely a poetic soul, David — or at least you tend to zero in on what I like best.

  3. I “blame” my high-school English teacher for opening my mind to the glories of poetry. Who knew words could be so powerful?

    Thanks (again) for sharing these.

  4. I need some of that peace. Wonder if I can slip into one of those lamp lit windows…..
