moon miss

The early full moon maiden
lay pale in a steel gray sky
a cameo of frigid beauty
spellbinding to the eye

as evening shadows deepened
now cloaked in midnight black
blushing to a golden rose
she danced her orbiting track

the opalescense of her beauty
touched everthing in sight
casting a mystical spell
till she faded with the night
