Sister


Silent, sterile and serene,
Our sister planet Moon,
A flying desert sans camel,
Arab, oasis, vulture. Immune
To time, a sleeping princess
Waiting for her kiss,
Smoothly sails her space ellipse,
A glowing sepulcher in vacuum abyss.
Someday, the rings of Saturn
May be persuaded to unwind
To stream piedpiperwise
Behind a cosmic hypnotist
And fall in ice cascade
To awaken in surprise
The dormant Moon, now kissed,
And we may see, after a while,
The night most pleasantly
In ornament of a green smile.

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?

It kindles all the sunset land:
