POEM: Goddess of Night by Tania Burnett

Goddess of the moon and stars,

O’ night skies and wonders far.

Goddess of deep lovers sleep,

O’ dreams and fantasies unseen.

Awaken from upon your bed

Where natures graced you with the best.

Shake down your locks of the dark

Your sister goddess now has left.

Goddess of meteor showers,

O’ wishing stars and constellations.

Goddess of the sun day’s end,

O’ twilight and stretching shadows.

Wear your cloak weaved with midnights color.

Play the flute of nightly slumber.

Open your eyes for they’re the stars.

Let nature’s inky beauty glimmer.

Goddess of all imaginations,

O’ many a story made in its darkness.

Goddess of cosmic creations,

O’ nightly things and moon flowers.

On your chariot pulled by stars,

Under cover of stealthy clouds,

Come close my tired weary eyes.

Come be my midnight lover.

Goddess of the moon and stars,

O’ night skies and wonders far.

Goddess of deep lovers sleep,

O’ dreams and fantasies unseen.

Place a kiss so I may fall asleep.

    A young Shakespeare is in the making. Please give her your added support and courage. It is poetry that defines our origins of reality.
