Moon is my Muse

Gracing the night as a pale shining sphere
Shedding her beams o'er the land far and near
Gliding along with the curtain of stars
With her companions, bright Venus and Mars

Light all around me reflects on the snow
Bathed in the presence of Luna's fair glow
Moonlight the same over thousands of years
Shines on the earth as a comfort to fears

Moon that is full, or a crescent that wanes
On through the ages, fair Luna remains
Kissing the slumbering earth with her light
Shining in beauty so soft through the night

As the earth does endure, as the ages roll by
May the moon ever shine as a lamp in the sky

    Congratulations, Isaiah...a lamp whose energy is supplied by the sun. Had not thought of the moon's companions, thanks for the image.

    gosh, this is the third moon muse sonnet I have read in the last 15 min and it is remarkable how beautiful each sonnet is. I don't know how the judge will decide this contest with beautiful poems like this one.

    Oh, wow, Isaiah - You have outdone yourself with this one! You should write sonnets more often. The last two lines are simply perfect :)
