A Moonlit Sky

To compare you to a moonlit sky
Bathed in the light of the stars aglow
With gloom and Night across the earth
Your face, the Moon, a beauty to bestow

Perhaps a glee of only a few hours or so
For the darkness shall flee and the sun shall glow
Yet beyond all time your visage shall shine
Whether the murk shall come or afar shall go

Allaying placidity with nightfall shall grow
An embrace that renders your charm of woe
When the heart succumbs to emotion, to Night
 Reason lives not within the core below

So ebbs the Night beneath clear dawn
I now shall await that you emerge anew

    Beautiful! I too read a hint of Shakespeare in here, but I think that is to be taken as a compliment. I really enjoy your choice of words; they flow well together, and your ending lines tie the poem together perfectly.

    sounds a bit Shakespearean? Try for 10 sllyabels per line! It will make it a stronger verse. Light & Love

    Another gem you have here, young Farah. You're a poet. Love, Kathleen (P.S. I would say though that it's "moonlit", not "moon-lit", without a dash. I could be wrong, of course).
