Moon's Child Poem by Savita Tyagi

Moon's Child

Rating: 5.0

Night is stygian sans of stars
Dark mood shares kinship
With black sky of new moon
Moon's jubilant child I am shedding
The gloom under full moon's glow

(This is the fourth time I started typing my response. Something keeps erasing my text!) SO IT GOES, as Billy Pilgrim used to say. - No stars shine in the night sky. Nothing illuminates the night. And that blank black sky parallels a dark mood among humanity, one reflecting the other, accentuating this grim situation. But you are the moon's jubilant child, you embody the pure light of the New Moon, and when it shines on things it brings emotional light as well. This is a mysterious rescue (I referred to Elizabeth Bishop's poem ONE ART in my text message. Serendipity! It's Today's Poem on the HOME PAGE.)

Savita, I already added this poem to my list. It's a wonderful evocation of the moon's special rapport with poets. I too am a moon-struck poet! I like the way you acknowlege the moon's often negative impact on people's moods and THEN take on the the mission of altering that baleful effect AND YOU SUCCEED, earning the gratitude of poets (and people) everywhere. This poem is based on an ancient notion that poet's have (for lack of a more precise word) magical powers. And this poem illustrates a portion of that magic!
