gypsy moon

A Poem by Juliespenhere

fantasy poem

some nights
you will see her 
run to flight
run to her eternal
heavenly light
there she sits alone
on cliff
the waves do 
swell below in thunderous
waves of might
she sits so still
waits for the clouds to disappear
and takes off all her earthly gear
the midnight
it shines so bright
on this sweet angel of the night
after dancing to her moon
up there
she puts back on her earthly wares
her hair so matted
in swirly curls
she puts on her adorning pearls
in each ear she pushes through
the turquoise blue the
gentle hue
twas yesterday he saw her here
he passed by once
and now hes here to gaze
at this unearthly creature
that God has made
she looks behind to see if she
leaves a remnant there of
anything to show in dawns new light
she passes by him in the bush
she knew he watches
her with his smoking light
she runs past him in a whirl
he tips his head
his smoke it curls
till tomorrow night she thinks
he'll wait all night for her she knows
she wont come back
his moon will be black
shell go somewhere else
in her gypsy van
to some far off forgotten land
she needs no man to study her
just  God and moon and tides that swell
so now she must find some far off
new hill 
and to that end she must surely dwell
