Stardust – Northern Lights

Inspired by my grandfather.

12×18 pastel on Wallis paper ~ SOLD

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we’re apart

You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
of paradise where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love’s refrain

  1. Beautiful picture. I love the northern lights – even though I’m too far south to ever see them.

  2. Hey Jackie, Shane here. I just wanted to say how awesome this pastel is! You got some serious talent going on. I collect wolves, so I am partial to this “Northern Lights” one, but all your work is very good. Glad to see you doing what you love. Many people can’t say such, and it is good to see someone do what they are passionate about. Anywho, I will continue to enjoy checking out your creations!

    • Thanks Shane, that means a lot. I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on facebook with my recent paintings of the Northern Lights & I can’t wait to do more. I used to collect wolves wayyyy back in the day and I’m finding myself being more interested in wolves again.
      And thanks for following my creations!! :)
