‘Twas early winter night, a pregnant half moon
Soon to be full, rose quarter high in the sky,
And illumined the snowfield and frozen lagoon
 
Otherworldly dreamscape, as far as eagles fly
Vast wonderland gleaming in silv’ry moonlight
Deliciously inviting; like the fabled Lorelei
 
Pristine snow, untrodden; no sign of blight
And each evergreen cloaked in a frosty shroud;
The panoramic view’s simply a poet’s delight!
 
Distant hilltops obscured by a mushroom cloud
Thus, giving the snowscape a mysterious air
Yet there’s unease; foreboding screaming aloud
 
For the scenery’s lifeless, desolate and bare
And the half-moon masks not incipient despair!

I’m a fan of nature, and the descriptions in this poem are great! The image of the moon getting larger, I can relate. I’m pregnant right now; getting larger too. I love mushroom clouds and half moons.

@J Ann Crowder : Congratulations Jenifer. You’re soon to be full LOL.

Thanks for liking. The moon and the night have been my favorite themes, or so it seems.

Percy Shelley says yes you got it. Reads very well, flows very well. Images captured Lorelei enticing song/legend.

Like. Thanks Brod.
