In the blink of an eye
Like a wink in the sky
You rise to magnificent height…
Night whispers soft, its fingers brush
Your glowing cheek to the peak of blush-
How you feign innocence!
But innocent not
is your wicked plot
to plunder our lives
and topple our pots.
We gnash our teeth
and wring our hands,
as moments pass-
the golden sands
through the hourglass.
Willing, we wait for a precious glimpse
into your temptress heart-
to fly, to sigh-
You are to blame for all insane;
So, I stripping naked my body
and soul, accept the gifts you offer.
May we emerge anew as the shadows recede,
for Autumn’s embrace cometh soon-
unable to resist the bewitching charms
of his mistress,
The Harvest Moon.
