A Death And A Coronation

Poem By Valsa George

Over the west the Sun dies, oozing blood,
The hillside glows in a ruddy blaze,
Pink and crimson fade slowly around,
And a pallid shade taints the twilight haze.

By and by, darkness descends like boggy mist,
Wrapping the Earth in a blanket of gloom
And God turns on his ornate chandeliers
To illumine the world in effulgent gleam

Attended by a cortege of starry maids
The Full Moon arrives in her glowing raiment
Evading the amorous presence of clouds
She enthrones herself before the royal regiment

So glad she is in her princely state
And in her fair mien, she takes delight
Bards and lovers have often been mesmerized
By such charm surpassing all that is bright

Beaming, she gives the night its nocturnal glee
Beckoning us heavenward to gaze and praise.
With benign grace and regal grandeur she smiles
On kings and clowns and on all the human race

She changes her contours with every unleashing night
Constantly renewing and reveling as a glamorous queen
She leaves the world aglow beneath the blue sky
Lending the night its unrivalled celestial sheen

A marvelous poem that holds every reader spellbound. And so mellifluous when read. Onto my Poem List.
Excellent write with a captivating title and compelling imagery. A poetic gem that gives us the privilege to witness one of the amazing scenes of Mother Nature. Each and every stanza vividly portrays the wonders and beauty of the Sun and Moon, the interplay of colors at the celestial dome and the stars that enhance the beauty of the night.
A Death And A Coronation....awesome title and awesome presentation of the taken theme...the way you have formed your quatrain also sounds musical with chiming rhymes...the decline of the sun and the successive rise of the moon is fabulously painted in your golden words Valsa...wish you all the best...keep it going this way...God bless you 100
In west direction sun sets and we feel that sun dies. Cream and crimson faded sun again revives trust and grows with beauty and benevolence to rise next morning with light and power. The Full Moon arrives in her glowing raiment and clouds shine at night. The celestial time leads with light. A powerful perception of nature is brought up ahead with extreme philosophic perspectives....10
She changes her contours with every unleashing night Constantly renewing and reveling as a glamorous queen She leaves the world aglow beneath the blue sky Lending the night its unrivalled celestial sheen A beautiful descriptive poem and thoughtful as well.................10
