Under Winking Stars


Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings

Under winking stars

deer walk through the silent streets,

an owl hoots as she wings by

the raccoons having a party,

with fireflies pulsing their disco lights.

The moon is a smile in the sky,

she hums a lullaby

for families inside—now sleep.

Mother_and_Child_(2) Ida Waugh, 1881, [Public Domain in U.S], Wikipedia

This is a quadrille for dVerse. De Jackson (aka Whimsy Gizmo) has asked us to use some form of the word wink. I don’t think we’re going to see stars or moon tonight in NJ, but I hope we can go to sleep with some good news.
