24 (who?)
Stand in the warm glow
That rains so lightly upon
The cold, glittering snow
Before that star is gone

Shelter from the cold night
Until the brilliant dawn
The return of the soothing light
Of which we've grown so fond

Too often, the more distant stars
Go, in our ignorance, forgotten
They're away from us, so very far
But from them, are our lives begotten

The Music of the Spheres
Is audible to attentive ears
Listen to that magnificent symphony
That of the vast, dark eternity

Burning Orb of Luminescent Glory
Eclipse the whole of the human story
Lashing out with tongues of fire
Trivialize all human passion and desire

Stars are within us
As we are but a small part
Of the Forever All;
The Wonderful Universe
Pantheistic poem I wrote while on the bus the other day. "The Forever All" is an alternate term for the Universe. Enjoy!

Woah! I never expected this to get this many favourites! Thank you, everyone!

Thanks so much! And no worries about the late notification! :P

How often do deviants get featured twice? haha

:giggle: Well now there's five admins who do features so there's bound to be deviants who get featured more than once but at least we make sure they're not featured for another month :aww: There is going to be changes soon though so there'll be more of a gap ;)

Ah, alright. I don't mind being featured more than once, so don't make it too big a gap. ;)

My critique follows:
The arrangement of the rhyme was very standard and very smooth. As a general poem it is adequate, as a philosophical or spiritual poem it has better standing. The universe reference at the close was what induced me. The content was breathtaking. I loved that the remote stars go forgotten, and that they lie within us.
