Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A Winter-White Wish.


Fierce, glittering winter-bright Moon,
Lighting this white, mysterious world.
Shine throughout night, he'll be home soon
And need your lamp to keep unfurling
Each rise and fall of glistening
Snow-bound field and hidden lane.
I'll stand with candle, - listening.
Please guide his way back here again.

    Reminded me of a time many years ago when I used to walk home along a tree clad winding lane. The moon used to cast many shadows but gave me light to show the way. A lovely poem, of a winter landscape. Bob (Report) Reply

    A very picturesque piece. I can imagine these words inspiring the subject of a painting. There seems to be a whole story waiting to be told behind this cleverly constructed verse. (Report) Reply

    The image of moonlight reflected in the snow evokes thoughts of peaceful beauty- artfully stated with sumptuous language and fluid rhythm. (Report) Reply
