moonless deep

oh darling moon

hiding on the far side of night

staying close to your shining sun

down the babbling brick lane i run

to the flowing strand of colors

the faintest blends into the others

a thousand windows watch the bay

where all the hues come to play

clouds of color fill my lungs

feast of festive flavors on our tongues

sounds of songs on water shimmer

stretch my ears to glean a glimmer

wind on lake evokes a dimple

tender night with joys so simple

dear lake soon aflutter with surface ripple

delighted eyes sup from night’s nipple

too soon does wane enlightened deep

without the moon i drift to sleep
