By the Light of the Moon (inspirational poetry)

Moon beams shine within the night..
Moon beams shine within the night..
Moonbeams to spawn our dreams...
Moonbeams to spawn our dreams...
Its light to Make our lives, not as each may  seem...
Its light to Make our lives, not as each may seem...
creatures, rare, all to share...
creatures, rare, all to share...
Moonlight so bright, within the darkest night...
Moonlight so bright, within the darkest night...


The moon rises high over granite cliffs,

Well above the mountain home,

The beams of light, pierce the night,

As shadows sway, and to roam.


Like sugar sprinkled on tall green trees,

To stand in concentric rows,

By a cooling wind, the fresh airs to blend,

Its spell so ebbs and flows.


A hoot owl's call, does each enthrall,

Announcing the night time's hour.

While in the dark, a restless lark,

Does call and to watch from its bower.


The Whippoorwill, its sound so shrill,

Answers back, in its jealous reply,

A browsing deer, stands quietly near,

No sound, its keen hearing to deny.


A sleeping fox, curled within its den,

Does rest and to stir, in its dreams,

All creatures, rare, each to share,

Beneath the moon's golden beams.

It's amazing to think of all that the moon has overseen…all creatures great and small.

I am going to ramble on a bit I hope you don't mind. I have noticed that recently you have dedicated yourself to writing poems on a more scheduled basis. First I love to see more of your poetry and one day you will notice a collection maybe two just sitting there waiting to be published. Second, I don't want to use the word improvement in poetry, but just like all arts practice pays off and your recent poems reflect your practice. You have found a groove with your rhythm, I feel that with scansion I could find some wonderful use of meter. Amazing stuff whonunuwho and I hope to read more. Jamie
