As I came to the edge of the woods,
Thrush music — hark!
Now if it was dusk outside,
Inside it was dark.

To dark in the woods for a bird
By sleight of wing
To better its perch for the night,
Though it still could sing.

The last of the light of the sun
That had died in the west
Still lived for one song more
In a thrush's breast.

Far in the pillared dark
Thrush music went —
Almost like a call to come in
To the dark and lament.

But no, I was out for stars;
I would not come in.
I meant not even if asked;
And I hadn't been.

Robert Frost.

Frost's poem is the perfect accompaniment to your stunning night shot. I bow down to your photographic skills and whatever might have happened in the computer to produce this scene! Love it...
