Selene's Nightly Ride

I can’t wait to see Endymion tonight
I don my headdress, a crescent delight
Then I travel across the inky black sky
Lighting each star as I pass by
Down to earth my chariot rides
To Endymion’s cave in the mountainside
Where he pulls me close, his eyes to mine -
Our love shooting stars into the night
Later when the sun threatens to rise
I put him to sleep with a lullaby
The stars wink out as the night dies
And a single teardrop falls from my eye
I grab my steeds and make them fly
Back into the sky, collecting starlight

for nette's "in the mood of imagery" contest
Susan Burch
