Northern Lights
By Marcella Dent
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 1999 Category: Margaret Mielke Memorial Poetry Award

Oh, Northern Lights,
Racing wildly though the hushed sky,
Flashing your fiery colors
Like a spinning dervish dancer.
Weightlessly journeying through space,
Weaving tapestries around stars.
Wrapping earth in blankets of effervescence,
Like a dragon's scorching breath,
Warming the cool crisp night,
Silken rivers of iridescent colors,
Banishing shadows.
