Autumn Moon

Luna’s soft beams pierce the night
Inviting shadows to dance and play
Dancing silent in the moon’s dim light
A final waltz before the break of day

The stars take their place in the abyss
Fixed still and dressed in silver lace
They decorate with glitter and mist
Forever in the dark; they take their place

Luna has collected the dim starlight
And saved it for an autumn moon
It gives a glow to the darkest night
But fades into azure sky by noon

Luna rests, exhausted by the autumn sun
She sleeps by day and glows by night
She reminds all when the day is done
She’ll return to make a dark night bright
