Innocence

Clear night, beckons youthful lovers To a meadow lush and silky green Amorous wafts twirling beneath the stars That shimmer, above this glamorous seen. Whiffs, Refreshing and scented Heavenly lilies… Angels dancing to a beautiful sight Gossip and laughter sparks of light The moon then said Before she fled These are secrets of the night. Sighs Of love Merging with silence Harmony compelling them to be One, in the arms of each other’s company Not two, not separate, angelic forms, sweet love making… The mist soon glides stealthily As though a blanket covering a holy act Aroma of perfume mixed with bodily perspiration Fills the air with redolence of innocence What a delight! But the night is almost over First light in sight! Michael

The poem is very nice, but it is not qasida. As a rule, qasida is longer than ghazal, but it follows the same system of rhymes (AA-BA-CA-DA...). Check the definition and examples.
