Night Time by Caterina Falco (Second Prize)

I love Night Time!
As I look out my bedroom window I see the magical moon.
It lights up my backyard with its silvery glow.
The twinkling stars make the sky shine so bright.
I wish I could touch a star – they are amazing and so so sparkly.
When I lay down in my bed and before I go to sleep, I hear the bats
and possums beginning their day, rustling around my yard.
My dreams will now be filled with light while I lay my head to sleep the night.
