Moon

The moon grasped my heart tonight!
Like the glow of a burning lamp
It gleams in a mantle of delight
Beneath the clouds of misty damp

Like a wandering eye that glances
To every nook and corner streets
A silent witness to life's romances
And all affairs most pure and sweet

My deep feelings drifted in the air
To the realm of the moon's domain
Where it's splendor of light will scatter
To her place where it will remain

On this night under the fainted stars
To the reddish moon that looks divine
In sober reflections I humbly strive
That my muse conveys a modest sign

As my heart refuses to rest tonight
The moon exalts a greater mystery
My continued toil of a workers plight
She eases the pain of melancholy...

    Your verse grabbed me with the first line, and captured my breath:
    The moon grasped my heart tonight! ...

    And I almost held my breath through the whole poem. You write so beautifully. How did you learn to pen such lovely verse?
