Valsa George


A Death and a Coronation


Over the west the Sun dies, oozing blood,
The hillside glows in a ruddy blaze,
Pink and crimson fade slowly around,
And a pallid shade taints the twilight haze.

By and by, darkness descends like boggy mist,
Wrapping the Earth in a blanket of gloom
And God turns on his ornate chandeliers
To illumine the world in effulgent gleam

Attended by a cortege of starry maids
The Full Moon arrives in her glowing raiment
Evading the amorous presence of clouds
She enthrones herself before the royal regiment

So glad she is in her princely state
And in her fair mien, she takes delight
Bards and lovers have often been mesmerized
By such charm surpassing all that is bright

Beaming, she gives the night its nocturnal glee
Beckoning us heavenward to gaze and praise.
With benign grace and regal grandeur she smiles
On kings and clowns and on all the human race

She changes her contours with every unleashing night
Constantly renewing and reveling as a glamorous queen
She leaves the world aglow beneath the blue sky
Lending the night its unrivalled celestial sheen

    Wow Valsa describing the Sun in all of its magnificent lights and th Moon basking
    in its regal splendor. These two celestial planets created and put in place by the Almighty
    God to heat and provide a luminous light at night for all to see and experience. You
    have written this very well my friend. I am at a lost for words. (Report) Reply

    The first six lines are remarkable for their expression. It makes the reader a bit sad but the twist was an amazing one. I love the idea behind this thought. I can link the idea behind the setting of sun and the arrival of the moon to real life. When God closes one door HE opens another. Lovely imagination. Fantastic (Report) Reply

    Many are the poems that abound about the Moon but this poem of yours is really superb surpassing all.!
    - And God turns on His ornate chandeliers- - Oh! What wonderful imagination! The music of the poem echoes in my heart making me read the poem again and again. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
