Moon short poem

Photo by Steve Corey

Gleaming and shining with a mesmerizing light;
peeping through my window at night,
Oh playful, delightful and lucid moon,
I cannot play with you, hide away soon!

Disappear amidst the clouds carefree moon;
Put off your glaring shine now soon,
I need to wake up early to bird’s croon,
I’ve a meeting with sun bright and maroon !

I don’t want to close my window and eye;
Can’t help but heave a heavy sigh
Tomorrow I’ve to wake up early. Oh my!
I am not in a playful mood, hide in the sky!

Hide behind crowd of dark clouds ;
Beneath mountains steep like shrouds,
As I stare at the enthralling full moon,
the world is silent and asleep in a cocoon!

I lose my peripheral vision befalling;
bathing in the moon rays night’s stalling.
Tomorrow I’ve to wake up early. Oh my!
Can’t play, let me sleep, please go away!!!
