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.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
