A June Night

Rating: 3.1
Ten o'clock: the broken moon
Hangs not yet a half hour high,
Yellow as a shield of brass,
In the dewy air of June,
Poised between the vaulted sky
And the ocean's liquid glass.

Earth lies in the shadow still;
Low black bushes, trees, and lawn
Night's ambrosial dews absorb;
Through the foliage creeps a thrill,

Good poem, but I think Wordsworth's The World Is Too Much With Us is a superior poem on a similar theme. Cheers.

Beautiful poem on summer night. Thrilling expression like... Earth lies in the shadow still; Low black bushes, trees, and lawn Night's ambrosial dews absorb; Through the foliage creeps a thrill, Whispering of yon spectral dawn And the hidden climbing orb. Higher, higher, gathering light, Veiling with a golden gauze All the trembling atmosphere, See, the rayless disk grows white! Hark, the glittering billows pause! Thanks for sharing.

Know that we are not alone, Though our open eyes behold Nothing save the moon's bright sphere, ............................................ absolutely except the trance of getting again!
