Sonnet - VII (O Moon, Bright Moon, In All Thy Glory Bound)


O Moon, bright Moon, in all thy glory bound
Thine aspect shall yet soothe the trembling heart
For as thy beauty gleams thus all around
Such sweet serenity thou full impart
For there within the darkness of the night
Upon the starry vault, thy countenance
As like a lantern ever glowing bright
Shall through all time all gentle souls entrance
Then with the wax and waning of thy face
To thus effect the oceans' ebb and flow
The golden sands forever to embrace
Whilst on the steely waters thou dost glow
….. Thou art the ancient keeper of the night
….. Upon the world to set thy shining light

    Love this sonnet, with the moon, my very favorite, along with the stars, and oceans ebbs and tides,
    I just close my eyes and I am there. Beautiful, Val, and such a feeling instilled! Thank you for sharing! (Report) Reply

    We are all enamoured by the moon and its different faces are captured in different ways by people of imagination, each one having its own charm, yours offering a unique charm! (Report) Reply
