Blaming The Moon. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Oh ominous moon - - pale portent of doom.
White luminous disk, suspended aloft
Thick blanket of black shot thru' with bright
Shiny catseyes of light, coating in soft
Unearthly glimmer this earthy-dark night,
Shine out your lovers' lantern-like gleaming
On harvested fields, waiting, like me- - - for
Moonstruck insanity, aided by dreaming,
Invaded my heart, broke down the door
To resistance, - - now ecstasy's hidden
In clandestine moments, - - oh wanton moon
Which with passion bewitches us - - bidden
By lunacy-love, he comes hurrying soon
To my arms yet again to set me aflame.
Oh moonbeaming night it is you I shall blame.! !

    Fay, this is truly a wonderful write, images of love under the celestial moon, how romantic, makes me wish I was back courting...walking down those quiet country lanes. Not really though when I think of all the trouble that was to come. 10/10 Bob xx (Report) Reply

    This wonderful poem is bursting with romanticism in nearly every line, Fay, and your imagery in it is quite impressive as well. It is a passionate statement of longing and surrendering to lust, and your title fits this poem perfectly, particularly
    should you need an excuse! Just a delightful write from beginning to end. Carl.
