Exposed Stars

Cool and crisp eve lighted by exposed stars
A nearly full moon; a quiet that's ours
Through dark  bare limbs of silhouetted oak
Moments shared thinking of our time to part

Will the hands of midnight be soon to stroke
And one of us will wear the mourning cloak?
Alas, my night love let's together depart  
To the Son lit city by His call envoked

Our night love flowing from an open heart
Let's enter our night that work of love's art
Come into the twilight let's slowly walk
Into night's dwelling never to depart


Finis' interlocking
Rubaiyat form..
