A rainy night

Sarah Stanton

the fog on the glass melts away
the streetlights beam a smile
the delicate rain
pitter patters on the windshield
stars glitter
and time stops
oh this night
this night means beauty
this night means elegance
this night means calm.

Sarah Stanton is fourteen years old and lives in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
