Shining like some fireflies
Shrouded by clouds sometimes

Sharing life with you dear
Superb feeling of love

The Octelle, created by Emily Romano, is a poem consisting of eight lines using personification and symbolism in a telling manner. The syllable count structure for this verse is 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, and the rhyme scheme is aa/bb/cc/aa. The first two lines and the last two lines are identical.

Give them a wave as you pass them
Watch them admire you like bright gem
A star they think you are cool
Prevent them from being fool
Being famous doesn’t last
Enjoy it and have a blast
Give them a wave as you pass them
Watch them admire you like bright gem

thousand shooting stars
it’s raining silver

We were in the Philippines one holiday and the night was clear. All the stars, planets and the moon were there, and they were amazing to watch. So Him Indoors and I decided to lie down on the grass as we admire them. We felt so tiny compared to the universe, but glad that we’re all part of it. Great night to remember!

starlight star bright
making a wish as we count
amazing wonder
