Light Of The Moon (poem)

Updated on January 4, 2013

They kissed in the light of the moon

‘neath heavens with stars richly strewn

Two lovers whose hearts were attune

To passions which made lovers swoon

In moments which passed far too soon


Yet there in the magic of night

They kissed in the light of the moon

Enhanced by its glorious sight

A blend to both Joy and delight

What wonder and dreams they’d ignite


The people who live by the day

Would greet one another and say

They kissed in the light of the moon

As they let their life slip away

Pursuing their final dismay


So they plotted end to affair

An offense the whole town would share

They knew that their targets were there

They kissed in the light of the moon

This light which would guide town to pair


But as the dark moment drew nigh

The lovers did not happen by

And people would soon find out why

As they turned their gaze toward the sky

They kissed in the light of the moon

      Very romantic.I love walking under the moonlight,but kissing under its rays..Wow..Something new to me.Maybe one day,It could happen to me:)Sir,those kissers under the moonlight are beautiful dreamers who can only find their way and passion,the real meaning of love by moonlight, and their punishment is that they see the dawn before the rest of the world.I voted up.

      The moon holds magical powers to ignite the soul and the fire of passion. Martin, you just get better and better with every breath you put on paper!

      This was fantastic! I didn't listen to all of the song (I'm going to listen to the rest later) but I know it's going to be a good one and I love Spanish songs. Good selection!

      What a gorgeous poem M. The video is also great. I understand the lyrics. They are beautiful. The visuals remind me of of things that I rather not want for.

      Something so magical about the moonlight! Interesting graphics in the video. It was fun to watch although I did not understand most of the words except "luna" meaning moon. Enjoyed your poetry as always.
