Pearl moon turn your gaze on me
from yon deep darkness of your sea.
Please gild my grief with silver here,
while spills my seasoned lonely tear.
~ ~ ~
Pearl moon lost within a cloud.
Where have you gone? I cry aloud.
Oh peek through shadows dark and lone,
and pull my lost one safely home.
~ ~ ~
Pearl moon’s glow - a gleam so free...
from your wide sky, shine yet on me.
For your enchantment could impart
sweet comfort to this sorrowed heart.

Lovely poem!  But very emotional.  I especially liked your first line... "Pearl moon turn your gaze on me
from yon deep darkness of your sea."  Thank you for posting!  I enjoyed it very much

You speak of sorrow of the heart with the beauty of the poet.  May the Pearl Moon shine down on you tonight.

I love this one.  Excellent Rosemary, truly excellent. I am going to send it as a ecard.
Great post!

 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dearest,

That's what we get for staying in those rainy cloudy states for so long, now what I like is the snowflaked crystal moon hanging low through the hoarfrosted golden wheat sending out electrical surges and tingling freezing feet. WOW, what a sight. Oh yea... did that Pearl ever gaze on thee..?

Dawn Eclipse - thank you for your appreciative words!

tracie66 - you're so sweet - but the sorrow is all over now.  It's just that a person never really forgets, and sometimes it appears out of the blue in verse.

Mike - I really appreciate your comments and kind wishes!

dhuron - I am very honored that you thought enough of this, to send it as an e-card!

Elizabeth Santos - your reply is always a thrill - your poetry and comments always mean a great deal to me.

Janet Marie - what deep and dear things you say!

mariee66 - thank you so much!

lucky - what can I say, my unique and darling husband, for your love is what saved me from that long ago tale of woe!

Rosemary--the pearl moon dwells within your heart and escapes for us to see in the beauty of your poetry.  This is so lovely!
