Le Lunar Poem by Patricia Grantham

Le Lunar

Illumines the dark and starless skies
With its luminous light that never dies
A romantic background amongst deep sighs
Looked upon in awe with the naked eyes

It shivers and shimmers as it glows
Controls the tides in ebbs and flows
To the moon gazer what an awesome sight
Viewed by the astronomer with pure delight
For others an object of utter sheer fright

A comfort to the lonely highway traveler
As they journey quietly along their way
Takes a deep bow for the sun to shine
Heralding a bright and brand new day

Thought by many to be an old harbinger
Of the countless changes in our moods
At times ones acts just like a swinger
Another time one rather sit and broods

Casts an eerie shadow over all the earth
Just as sorrow covers the hearts mirth
One of the universe most vital reasons
A catalyst for the changing of seasons
