NaPoWriMo Poem # 13 Night Sky

Night Sky

serene summer nights
darkness broken by the sliver shiver of the moon
carrying my dreams to you
resting in its glow
dreamy eyes turn heavy in the late hour
I allow my heart to fly afar
merging with you amongst sparkling stars

I was looking at a few poems about the moon this evening, and ran across a particular beautiful one by Ben Johnson. It is called "Queen and Huntress"

Queen and huntress, chaste and fair,
Now the sun is laid to sleep
Seated in thy silver chair
State in wonted manner keep

Hesperus entreats thy light,
Goddess excellently bright.

Earth, let not thy envious shade
Dare itself to interpose;
Cynthia's shining orb was made
Heaven to clear when day did close:

Bless us then with wished sight,
Goddess excellently bright.

Lay thy bow of pearl apart
And thy crystal-shining quiver;
Give unto the flying hart
Space to breathe, how short soever:

Thou that mak'st a day of night,
Goddess excellently bright"

Wishing you all a wonderful night!
