The Eclipse - Poem by Godfrey Morris

This world has been without its moon for far too long
Steadfastly clinging to the silent sky.
Must light be absent from mankind's arid heart?
Darkness hides its soul and spares not the one that glows
Will not the earth be apprehensive of the gloom this brings?
Nightly shadows hover in a pause to mark a very worthy cause
For without love, peace will surely elude us all.
