Merciful moon

Merciful moon

Full wholesome immaculate moon
            I have waited for you all my life
your perfect roundness in the dark sky
            your dimpled surface that shines down
and illuminates our nightly ventures
            the stuff we play at
our trusted dreams
            All my life
waiting for fulfilment
            for someone whose love would
shake me to the core of my being
            moon without shadow without guile
hues of ivory or soft white linen
            star-kissed ever faithful moon

John Lyons
