My thoughts return to you yet once again
When lustrous moon reigns queen o’er all the land,
Argentic auras gilding humble pen
While darkest shadows in mute reverence stand;
I bare my soul to regal eye above
In hope that flowing ink spills silver down,
Rich hand cast words I burnish so with love
Soft set in care, as gems placed on a crown.
Tonight, though bright, no precious words I find
Though in my mind your face shines sweet and pure,
I look down at this page that I have signed
Still blank and void, indorsement premature;
The moon in clever thought advises too,
At her behest, I scrive: I love but you!
