Moonlight Magic

The night was fickle as November
A time when all sleep in slumber;
A moist mist hangs over the river,
And a still cold moon hangs as a sliver.

A soft liquid light captures the glow,
Of the first few flakes of new fallen snow;
She shines her light on turret towers,
And tucks in bed the sleeping flowers.

Her crescent rides through clouds that fly,
Shining on wolves as they howl and cry.
Etching the transient phantoms of night,
As wings of an owl brush the dust of flight;

The crystalline light shines on lovers,
Yet pale and still the moonlight hovers;
To tip with silver the restless waves,
And on tombstones marking silent graves.

Cast your moonbeams, cast them down,
As you float in your silver crown;
And the ribbon of dawn will wrap your head,
And put your shining eye to bed.

    '...etching the transient phantoms of night, as wings of an owl brush the dust of flight,' how picturesque is that! One of the best poems about the moon I have ever read! :)

    An undertow of drama, that's what I get here, besides the sensitive sensation of reading a fine poem. This is not the same subject, but such a feeling comes when reading some of the German poets - Transfigured Night in particular. Love, daver
