Orb of Night

Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 39

Her voice that holds me as dusk turns to night
Into those deep hours when I need her most
When darkness blankets over all the light
Her voice, so gentle now, it draws me near
And resonates softly to touch my soul
My lady of the night understands my fear
And keeps me safe when bells of danger toll
Yet some will say she’s just a floating ghost
And comes to take or steal my self-control
I know different, that’s a fact, my dear
She is the lady and shines down so bright
She sets the world alight in lunar glow
No matter how hard life may seem to blow
My lady of the moon will always know
