Moonlight: A Poem

Hi there! I was stuck for ideas for ages this evening but eventually I came up with this, which I hope you enjoy.


Moonlight sits quietly in the night,

Casting light on pieces of star-dust in the air

That drift like down, gently through the shadows;

The luminescence pools

In silence on still waters,

Unbroken by ripples, unmarred

By shadows, or the curtain

Of the night; and the water

Is edged with a silver glow, and nowhere

On this silent eve is left untouched

By the whispers of the light threading its way

Down from the star-littered sky to brush soft echoes

Until the morning tide.
