A Night Thought

Rating: 3.1
Lo! where the Moon along the sky
Sails with her happy destiny;
Oft is she hid from mortal eye
Or dimly seen,
But when the clouds asunder fly
How bright her mien!

Far different we--a froward race,
Thousands though rich in Fortune's grace
With cherished sullenness of pace
Their way pursue,
Ingrates who wear a smileless face
The whole year through.

If kindred humours e'er would make
My spirit droop for drooping's sake,
From Fancy following in thy wake,
Bright ship of heaven!
A counter impulse let me take
And be forgiven.

Night the treasure of darkness The sun left it alone to the moon The moon travels slowly with its graceful light thinker finds a trustee board to brood on self and thoughtful beacon comes to show the path of solution with moon's steady pace here all depth here all depth alone ......in sullenness

Far different we- a froward race, Thousands though rich in Fortune's grace With cherished sullenness of pace Their way pursue, .....following just like the night to moonlit we are all the human being nowadays are losing into the jigsaw of blunt conscience; impressive thoughtful poem....
