Star-Crossed - For Love of Day, For Love of Night

(this is a form called Swap Quatrain, where first line's phrases swap in the last line of each stanza) In shadows’ veils, at end of night, sweet Moon removes her modest light and softly, yet again, exhales - at end of night, in shadows’ veils. As she departs, her love’s released to climb the stairway to the east. They cannot meet to share their hearts. Her love’s released as she departs. She watches him while hid from view, the way he kisses morning’s dew, and sees gold rays spill from his rim. While hid from view, she watches him. Sad Moon, alone for centuries, with awe has watched Sun leave, cerise. while she, afar. . . how cold she’s grown! For centuries, sad moon alone. She takes his place so he may rest. And though forlorn, she’s always dressed in lace, for Luna has great grace. So he may rest, she takes his place. For love of night, for love of day, she can’t implore him that he sway from course. To be apart’s their plight. For love of day, for love of night.

This is a stellar poetic achievement, especially so because you wrote it in a demanding form (Swap Quatrain). Little wonder it took first place in the referenced contest. Congratulations (well deserved). Hugs.

Speechless with wonder. What beauty flows from your pen. What a big big achievement to take first place in that competition and get published. When I look for various forms of poetry I often see your poems set as examples on Shadowpoetry. A poet of the highest order. A favorite.

My heartfelt congratulations, Andrea on your win in the Soup Contest. You paint the sun and the moon with the beautiful colors of your creative mind...that I can't distinguish reality from fantasy. It takes a poetess such as you to make personification as real as possible. Your poetical talent is a powerful tool to express your magical beauty. Enjoy another achievement and be proud. Have a Blessed and happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones. :) God loves you. Lots of love and hugs, Andrew.
