Lucianne Fasolo

At Night [old Poem]

Beside the pale, gentle moon
There shone a single radiant star,
Etched in the night of somber hue.
As I looked up a mighty swoon
Came over me, for so very far
Stood the star in the dark blue...

So lofty to me it seemed,
More beautiful than I could endure.
At length it spoke, and I understood,
Or was it that I only dreamed?
'Tis very hard now to be sure,
Now that its voice is gone for good.

But I heard it speak -so softly- to me,
In me awoke true love through kindness:
I thought I'd found what I still seek.
Then, in a fleeting mist of poetry
It left me in momentary blindness
Under the nightly sky, bare and bleak.

I grieved the loss of its light
And soothing words like lullabies,
Uttered by that voice I still love;
For to the empty, darkling night
I cannot bring it back with reveries
Nor bid it grace the sky above.

    The last verse of this poem is one of the most lovely that I have read.
    I gave this my normal high score of nine because of that beautiful verse.
