The Romance in the Skies

Slowly the moon rose above the horizon,
blushing red like a newly-wed maiden.

It peeps into the still waters of the lake,
before the amorous senses get fully awake.

The stars twinkle and gather round,
lighting the way for a maiden newly crowned.

The thin clouds glide to and fro,
cleaning the face shining aglow.

It rests its head into the arms of night,
never letting it go out of sight.

They roam the skies and go for a walk,
high above the green vales and shimmering lochs.

This is a love story forever told,
eternally young and never getting old.

Between an amorous night and a blushing moon,
a romance springs into an eternal bloom.
