Velvet Dome Bejewelled with light
Infinite mystery of obsidian night
Utopian future in future's womb
From star to star we'll zoom
A fiery arc of comet's trail
and graceful planets sail
Around majestic, life giving star
So dazzling! Brilliant! And yet so far
It seems to us like a speck of light
A sparkling sequin on blanket night.
Oh woman moon! Your melody
Of silent sweetness and remedy
Uplifts the soul..
And the lands below
are all aglow
with frosty silver enchantment.
As benign splendour of starry skies
-unblinking compassionate angel eyes-
uplift the souls of some,
An earthly beauty doth captivate
And will break my heart before she is done.
