“Catch the Night Star” by Margaret Joy Gibbs

Catch the Night Star


Before the squabble


Before the goodnight wink

of secret dragons,

Dandelions and pink

The clock turns blue

Then yellow and green.

Rose settles to sleep

With her books and bear

And bubbly dreams tucked away deep

Wrapped in a far away spell


Then, sadness sneaks in through the window

With the wind

In the trees

outside, uninvited.


And the night stars appear

To soften her heart holding the tears?

Beneath the pillow, runaway dreams

Chasing her fears,

The clock turns back to blue

Before the squabble.”
