Endymion,Lover Of The Moon

On summer hills I watched you I know you watched me too Every night you waited for me Every night I came to you From shallow oceans I have risen On silver chariots traveled high Crossed everlasting spaces which filled your empty sky Soothing manna showered your lips from the radiance of my light Crazy love I poured in your heart on each lone and serene night Humble shepherd boy Endymion You haven't chosen death,nor life In eternal sleep you've slumbered and made of me your wife You must have been a poet with a will to live our dream with a want to preserve passion for the last abiding crescent of the evanescent moon Selene.
Inspired by the Greek myth of Selene,goddess of the moon and Endymion and by beautiful poetry.

There is charm, grace and beauty in this captivating poem. Greek mythology makes for excellent inspiration and you get the best out of it. Shy Selene has long been an inspiration to me as well. Well done, once again, Charm! // paul

You definitely write with such beauty and grace, Charma, and this is no exception--- I really enjoyed how each of your lines flowed into the next, and I also enjoyed this enchanting story you shared here, I didn't know about this, so thank you for sharing with us. When it comes to the moon and romance, your poetry definitely glows....
