Lambent Moon

Flickering Lightly
Lambent moon
Your reflective image
Of ancient moods
Pours forth
On this summers eve
So still the water
That waxed and waned
From the passionate pull
Of your springtime
Gives birth
In perfect reflection
By ripple or deception
Creator of
This ancient mood
I stand in praise
To the lambent moon
