Nocturnal Glimpses

Night, Moon, Night Sky, Moonlight, Blue, Trees, Dusk

Shadows
Dark – Primeval
Moonlit – But Without Warmth
Chill Breezes Make Hairs Stand On End
As Haunting Owls’ Calls Pierce
The Nocturnal
Woodland

 

Why Then
In Forest Dark –
At Night-time – Dare I Tread?
Forsaking The Sunshine’s Safety –
Filling My Heart With Dread –
While others are
Abed?

 

I Pass
This Way In Hope
That I Might Chance To See
The Face Of A Fair Forest Sprite
And She In Turn See Me –
Then I Content
Will Be

 

But Sprites
You Say Are Myths –
Fables – Just Make Believe
But You Dearest One – Are The Sprite
The Vision Beautiful
That I So Long
To See
