Poetic Form

A Ballad

Moon Light

Moon of the great sky,
moon of a diamond eye,
moon of a mythical glow,
from your energy hearts can grow.

( And sing to you oh Luna child,
in the still heat of the western night.)

Moon upon the crisp dew of the morning
Moon in the calmness of the dying night
Moon lay your light into my path
Moon on the rise with a guiding light.

( And sing aloud for my Luna love,
a gift of light shall fill your soul.)


Light on the crest of the north shore hills
Light pave the way to a lovers cocoon
Light in the passion of a cool still ocean
Light from the music of the watchful moon.

( And sing on the bower on a summers night,
lovers on a path beneath a brazen moonlight)


Light of the morning sky,
light from a crystal eye,
light of a luminous glow,
from your brightness love will grow.

I like it! You are such a romantic! The moon has always been watchful over me too. I guess because I'm always up so late.") Thanks for this.

Yes very nice poem and strange being a romantic the moon has never said romance to me either, maybe I am too realistic even with a soft heart. Love your name whether really yours or not, its mysterious and makes one stop to think what does it say or mean. I did my first poem at about 3AM this morning unable to sleep, maybe I should change my sleeping schedule, I may find myself. J/K
