Oh, Reigning Queen Of The Sky - Poem by Valsa George

Oh Moon, the shining lantern of the sky!
the brightest light set ablaze in the dark!
glorious boon, heaven freely granted!
committed guardian of the night!

you appear each night to lead the wayfarers,
stumbling across the murky faraway streets,
the ones lost in the labyrinth of darkness
shedding down beams of light on their way
you stay aloft in the firmament in deep solitude
yet in benevolent contact with all creation

the young and the old fall under your mesmerizing spell
we feel your aura embracing the whole of humanity
on seeing you, pure ecstasy warms our skin
and in elation, we whisper - "How beautiful you are! "

Topic(s) of this poem: moon, night, queen

    Such a beautiful poem on the Moon, dear Poetess Valsa.
    We, the classical dancers, portray the moon with mudras almost in all dances that we perform but as yet, i have never been able to write a verse on the moon. You have penned it with perfection. Enjoyed reading this beautiful poem....10

    The beginning line which is inscribed as 'Moon is the shining lantern of the sky' attracts the readers to go through this poem. Moon is beautiful creation of God. It appears each night to lead the wayfarers. Young and the old persons fall under its mesmerizing spell. The inspiration you have made is so touching and attractive. Enjoyed for second time.

    Your poems always make me spellbound. Let me quote from the lovely poem on moon-
    you appear each night to lead the wayfarers,
    stumbling across the murky faraway streets,
    the ones lost in the labyrinth of darkness
    shedding down beams of light on their way
    you stay aloft in the firmament in deep solitude
    yet in benevolent contact with all creation
