Did you see the moon tonight
Hanging 'tween the trees?
Blazing in her splendor bright
She kissed the evening breeze;

Playful shadows skipped and danced
Along the silent shore -
Reflecting off the water's edge
Across the valley floor;

A wishing moon, as some would say
All lovers would agree -
It holds all secrets great and small
And whispered thoughts set free;

This regal beauty of the night
Reigns mystical on high,
She governs all the earth below
And dominates the sky;

If dreams be colored by her glow
And wishes granted, too -
May all my dreams be realized,
And let my wish come true!

Serenity reigns! That moon 'hanging 'tween the trees' was as fresh and real as I might have seen out in the countryside. I'm with Alison in that your rhythm, rhyme, fluidity is as good as it gets! ! Loved this. jim xxx
Your are one of those poets who must have been born with the rhyming gene Linda. Your pieces have a satisfying pulse to them with scantion that is always spot on. That, coupled with such interesting and original images makes this a jewel of a poem. love, Allie xxxx
