Sultry Moon - Poem by Christine K. Trease

Honey-eyed crescent that floats in the sky,
why do you not hear the wishes of I?
My hopes are too big to be cast to a star
so I wish them to you, who floats careless, afar.

Pine-mist scented darkness, fragrant and sweet,
provides a safe haven and soothing retreat
for wishers like me to cast hopes to the sky,
so why do you not hear the wishes of I?

Heavy with hopes of an unanswered 'morrow,
my wishing thus far has but led to my sorrow.
I can see that my dreams won't be coming true soon, so
I'll sit here each evening and wish on the moon.

    I give you a 10.
    I live in the uplands of San Diego, we are surrounded by
    the mountains, a dessert atmosphere, and the moon is
    so beautiful, but remember you must be very careful ot
    what you wish for, as God may have a diffrent version of
    your request.
    thanks for reading my posts.
