Such a night of stars …

Beneath the icy moon
and sharp-edged stars
of winter,
I stood shivering:
and knew the meaning of alone.
Frozen shards of grass
beneath my feet
icicles of exile in my bones.
Such a night of stars;
coldly quivering
in brittle beauty
beyond happiness and despair,
illuminating my darkness
with dispassionate light ..
And with artless art
returned sparks of hope
to the wasteland of my heart …. .
