Moon Night - Poem by George Egba

I saw the moon in half
Last night like a pretty little boat calf
It sat watching at heavens gate
And began vigil at an hour late
With a glow so faint and frail
Like a candle burning pale
Gave the world a snow like look
And filters faintly down the brook
Then laid back silent as the night
With diamonds too partial for light
From moonlight fall
To dark shadow walls
Is nothing worthy of fun below
Though it lingers longer as the night grows
Dim below a sky of vacant stars
With travelers near and far
But add too little to ease
A world where darkness dose not cease
Or spark the earth to feel
From the mid month moon shining till
