serene selenity

you harvested my heart
had me from the start
now you want a lung
my breath duly wrung

such serene selenity
stay with me ’til senility
songs of solace sung
in silent sky you’re hung

presaged the equinoctial node
to you i write this ode
oh harvest moon
you’re gone too soon

now into darkened waning
for your brightness yearning
though fading from my sight
in my heart burn you bright
