Beauty in the Night

Your round shape
against the black blue sky

Rising from behind the mountains
at a very fast pace

Your shining magnificence
lights the valley floor

Shadowing the trees and bushes
bringing them to life

The creatures of the night
praise you in unison

As you light their
way in the dark

This night you are so close
I feel as if I can touch you

If I could, how would you feel?
cold like ice, I imagine

I hope you are never lonely
in your quiet observance of the masses

We honor your presence
you’re the beauty in the night.
