Sterling Moon

Spread the love


The orb of winter’s night;
Guides by sanguine light.
We sang a passionate tune;
While hoping to catch on soon,
A glimpse of sterling moon.

    We both wrote of silver moons – funny coincidence. You went deeper and more poetic though – complete with a dual set of rhymes giving it absolute music of the spheres. Lovely.

    “sterling moon” is stunning. Not just in color, in value. My love affair with the moon has assigned that level of value all these years, especially as a poet…and yet I have never given her this gorgeous adjective. Well done.
