Cold, clear night in early November,
One I think I shall always remember.
I went out on my porch to pick up a shoe
I happened to look up; the whole sky was blue!
Though it was dark, the sky was aglow,
With bright, brilliant colors of a summer rainbow.
They danced and they flickered from side to side,
It was like a heavenly amusement park ride.
I called to my parents to come out and see
This wonderful phenomenon swirling above me.
We silently watched as they danced back and forth
These bright colored lights that appeared in the North.
As we all stood and gazed up at the sky,
I thought to myself, how lucky am I?
To live in Alaska and view these great sights,
These wonderful, brilliant, great Northern Lights.
