Lunar Love

Lunar Love
Form: Sestina

Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing Heaven, and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth,–
And ever changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?

PB Shelley
When I gaze upon thy silver beauty,
My heart rejoices in thy love,
Ever changing, always the same - Lady moon,
I see your smile caress the Earth with hope
Among the stars and all that is divine
In thy hands lies the future.
In your radiance I seek the future,
As in the crystals I look for beauty,
While asking questions of the divine
Embraced by thy unending love,
My destiny is blessed with hope
And again, I gaze upon the moon.
My Lady, revealed within the moon,
Through times past, now and the future,
In our darkness thou brings’t hope
As winter’s nights are fuelled in beauty
The coldest days, touched by love
And awareness of all that is divine.
Thy lunar light that sings of divine,
And lifts the pagan eyes to the moon,
So all may know of thy love
That guides the way to the future
Through the snows of winter to pastel beauty
And a spring reborn in hope.
In the darkness thou art the hope,
The wonder of the great divine,
All things glowing in thy beauty,
Silver-kissed by the moon,
A pathway to the future
Now revealed in thy love.
Oh lunar Lady grant us thy love,
And fill our hearts with hope,
The strength to build the future
In respect to all that is divine
Once more I gaze upon the moon
And see that love is thy beauty.
To rejoice in thy beauty and wonders of divine,
As beneath the moon, in silver light there shines hope,
And knowledge that the future is mantled in thy love
