Eclipse - Poem by Valerie Dohren

Whilst gazing up towards the sky
I saw a wondrous sight
For in the beauteous heavens above
The day turned into night

The moon was dancing with the sun
Fixed in a long embrace -
A lovely courtship had begun
Up there in silent space

Suspended high in dark display
As one, entwined in love
Against the black and sombre sky
Their backdropp set above

They kissed so long and tenderly
Wrapped in a sweet romance -
Before my eyes they ballet`d in
A graceful cosmic dance

The darkened skies then set a scene
A truly splendid thing
As from their heav`nly union shone
A shimm`ring diamond ring

The daylight then returned in full
As, slow, they moved apart
Their marriage thus surrendered to
Reveal the sun`s bright heart
