Northern Lights
By Shana Reichlin
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2001 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

Out of reach of people
Racing across the sky
Threads of lights dancing
Happily light up the heavens
Eating up the sky with color
Neatly weaving through the clouds.
Lighting up the dark starry space
Interacting sheets of color
Greens, blues, violets and reds
High above us
We watch in amazement
The moving rivers of color
Lighting up houses
Seeing the outline of the mountain
Like a picture.
