Silent Moon Poem by Arthur Q. Kromwelle


silent moon it sits and waits
oh the depth of which I cannot fathom
desperate toll and chasing wind
the sun left stranded in the night
silent moon, oh smile on me
silent moon, tonight
tonight

    That is a pretty good rhyme in this verse. Beyond that, I have a hard time
    determining what this is about. It is obviously a prayer to the moon, but
    for what reason or to what purpose. I suppose I'm supposed to guess. No can do. I like it layed out a little more. Oh well, still a good rhyme.

    I like the imagery of a trapped sun. Have you thought of publishing this? (Report) Reply
