The Midnight Moon

The midnight moon glows
unveiling the sparkling
of stardust
drifting over the sky

The stars glimmer
twinkling in all their glory
waiting for a wish
in a child’s lullaby

Lovers embrace
and dance slowly
gently entwined
under the midnight moon

Daylight will come
and life rolls on
the night, in all her glory
taking leave all too soon

Yet, with a knowing
as sure as breath
she comes again
to shine and beam

Watched by many
traversed by few
captured in song
as you drift, then dream

Trickery of vision
belays her image
obscuring her entirety
from view

Clouds float by
an endless game
of hide and seek
yet still, she shines for you

Size and shape change
yet those who know
understand she is always there
orbiting, providing light

Look to the skies
enjoy the imagery
bestowed to you
on this moonlit night

For the blue moon
will leave once more
giving way gladly
to day and the sun

Yet for all the others
across the sea
she is shining there
where night has just begun

So though you may not see her
understand she has not left
she remains there always
as constant as the earth

Appearing nightly
as we spin and turn
to grace all who see
for all she’s worth.
