How magical a night this was

Art by C.E. Pereira

The night sounds call to me.
A full moon adds romance.
To sit on the porch swing.
If only my love was here.

Yet, I enjoy this quiet night.
A spin of nursery rhymes.
As I look at the moon, I wonder.
Why did the cow jump over the moon?

I looked to the sky full of stars.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
A silver moon among the sparkles.
I saw it winked at me, it did.

Then I heard the crickets sing.
The quiet of night with melody.
As the fireflies flicker and flash.
Are you a lamp for faeries?

The bullfrogs joined in, singing.
Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, was heard.
The night scented with Jasmine.
How magical a night this was.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
