Oh Goddess Moon

Oh Goddess Moon, you induce painters to paint,
the crazed to rave and poets to praise your grace.
How many love affairs have you helped to consummate?
With a woman’s many wiles, you change your shape.
How you beguile, yet never do you vacillate.
You stay your course and never stray!

Like yin to yang, you are to sun a cool and pallid pool,
changing, yet constant in your rule 
as you steadfastly move from New to Quarter To Gibbous to Full, 
and then you wane . . . 
till in Crescent Balsamic you reign -
there to shortly contemplate the wisdom you have gained.
Your fortnight ended, you journey back again.

We all beneath you are an ocean mystically pulled,
heirs to the gifts you weave at the time we are born.
Like our predecessors who learned to heed
your rhythmic sounds as they planted seed,
it would behoove us, with our vast technology,
to stop and study the sky, your teachings there to see!

    This sure is a Beauty, Andrea!! I really love how you spoke to the moon here, and just put the spotlight on her, you sure covered so much in this artfully written poem, and as always you make it look so easy, how you made everything flow and melodic. I love poems about the moon, and this one really shows how much of an inspiration it can be-- I've always wanted to include all the phases of the moon, and you did so here, with such grace--in a word-- I find this poem to be Divine!
