NIGHT MAGIC


WHEN ALL THE STARS COME OUT TONIGHT,
ARTIMIS SHINE YOUR MOONGLOW LIGHT.

LET THE NIGHT CREATURES SOUND THEIR CALL,
HARK YE EARTH SPIRITS, COME ONE AND ALL.

LET THE DARK FLOWERS PERFUME THE AIR,
COME FORTH SWEET MAIDENS, BOTH DARK AND FAIR.

OVER THE SEA THE WINDS SHALL DANCE,
WHILE WHISPERING WILLOWS BEGIN TO ENTRANCE.

HAUNTING MELODIES CREEP OVER THE GROUND,
SO OVERPOWERING, YET MAKING NO SOUND.

SYMPHONIES LIFT FROM THE MIDNIGHT AIR,
TEMPTING YOUR SENSES, CALLING YOU THERE.

THE MISTRESS OF NIGHT SHALL CLOAK YOUR FEARS,
SINIGING SO SWEETLY OF LONG AGO YEARS

SHE'LL TAKE YOU BACK TO ZEUS' DOMAIN,
WHERE SLY PUCK MAKES MISCHIEF, AND SOOTHES AWAY PAIN.

MYTHS APPEAR FROM OUT OF SWEET DREAMS,
WHERE NYMPHS ARE FROLICKING NEAR SHIMMERING STREAMS.

OUT FROM YOUR FANTASIES PEGASUS FLIES,
SPREADING HIS WINGS OVER STAR DUSTED SKIES.

SOFTLY AND GENTLY, THE PRESENT INVADES,
QUIETLY YOUR VISION BLURS, AND THEN FADES.

SOON DAYLIGHT WILL AWAKE WITH TENDERT FILLED EYES,
BRINGING BRIGHT COLORS TO SLUMBERING SKIES.

THEN, THE STARS WILL BE GATHERED AND ALL PUT AWAY,
WAITING IN SILENCE UNTIL THE END OF THE DAY.

AN AGE OLD TRADITION WILL BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE,
AS MOONGLOW AND DAYLIGHT PARTAKE IN THEIR RACE.

THEN WHEN THE SUN TRIUMPHS AND SHINES DOWN HIS GLORY,
A NEW PAGE WILL BEGIN IN THIS, NATURES STORY.

AS THE MISTS ROLL, AND SWIRL, AND FADE,
A MAGICAL AURA THIS NIGHT WILL HAVE MADE.

WHEN THE DAY COMES AND ENDS THE NIGHT,
DO NOT FORGET THIS MAGICAL SIGHT.

I see why this is your favorite piece. I like it too.

I think your piece has great imagery....it's very nice.

I do have a suggestion for future posts, however.....IT'S NOT SO EASY ON THE EYES WHEN YOU POST IN CAPS. IT TAKES AWAY FROM THE BEAUTY OF THE TEXT. It's easier on the eyes when you type like this. (At least in my opinion...and I'm only trying to help..please take no offense )
Ah, anyhow..it's worth a shot. You may get more responses.....you never know.

Magic makes the dream. Well done, Saxoness. The picture is painted well.
