Daylight Saved

Dusk, the end of day, the soften bed of moonlight,
brings wild thoughts within its sultry shadows musing.
Belle Lune, fair damsel, bringing love and fright,
release my tongue-tied self, please allow my crooning.

Troubadours have strung the onyx sky with comet
tails glittering white, and bowed each string to unite 
the pensive poet's heart and that of his fair coquette;
see them sway, a dance displayed amour in the moonlight.

Shadows deepen, have they left, thought hard, grown contrite
or has the moon, amused, drawn shadows 'round as gowns?
Will he rise at dawn, curtains drawn, write of the night?
The maid, the moon, the well so deep, the heat profound

calls to him in memory, now cooled by harsh light.
For now, there is, but the empty page of daylight.

    Oh, wow - This is so packed with romantic imagery. I love that you brought the reader back to reality with those last two lines. Much like waking up from a dream. (And thank you so much for my placement in your contest!)

    Hey, you, love the mode mixed with the classically romantic feel of this one. Also, I "think" that Soup (??not sure??) is trying to have some kind of friend space, so you can share work with only a few, this would be perfect for special work, publishable. It would also provide a private space for feedback, proofreading, discussion and reflection. I have no idea what it is about, but I remember reading about it, somewhere. Uh? Sent you a soupmail, my mind has gone wild... ABC, indeedy! xox Dee
