FULL MOON RIS­ING

Isis Town and Country - - Towns & Country - By JEAN WRIGHT

Scar­let-gold fades with the set­ting sun. The earth ro­tates and land and sea and sky merge into one. Di­a­mond stars trans­form the sky to lace, and per­fo­rate the in­fi­nite ex­panse of outer space. Softly glow­ing light above the earth an­tic­i­pates the slowly ris­ing arc of lu­nar birth. Mys­tic moon, syn­ony­mous with love, you paint the night with sil­ver moon­beams fall­ing from above. Slave of Earth and mas­ter of the tide; light of the night, in po­etry and love per­son­i­fied; iri­des­cent waves upon the sea re­flect your light. Your magic has in­spired through his­tory.
