Goddess of the Night

Where Luna treads 
are silver threads,
the wisps of clouds that slide
through sky of night,
and shining white,
they part so she might glide
serenely through 
dark twilight’s blue
with slow and regal grace.
And to our world, 
with aspect pearled,
she turns a beaming face.

She casts her glow
on those below
who love her mystery. . .
who reverence her
as with allure,
she dances on the sea.
The lovers sigh 
as by and by,
the night fades into day.
And in their dreams
she softly gleams
before she slips away.

Andrea, the way you have weaved these thoughts with hymn meter makes it feel so lyrical and would be so easy to put to melody...not that it need be, it creates its own.
