The Winter Moon

Perched above the mountains high
Glowing bright in the ebony sky
An angle of the passing gloom
the golden orb of the winter moon

Its moonbeams pierce the dark of night
and decend upon the blanket white
a fiery shimmer on the icy land
Lit by the touch of the moonbeams hand

Oh darkness darkness of winters night
afraid you are of the angels light
Run away you evil gloom
Its the time of the Winter moon

Lovely work - Oh darkness darkness of winters night
afraid you are of the angels light

this is an unusual line and I really like it.

James -

This has the most pleasant
roll off the tongue.
I really enjoyed it.

Such a sharing and "illuminating" sentiment, this! You've left a lovely imprint of our moon's shine, sublime, and quite beautifully read aloud. Thank you.
