She is brighter than dawn

She is brighter than dawn

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

She is brighter than dawn
by Michael R. Burch
 
for Beth
 
There’s a light about her
like the moon through a mist:
a bright incandescence 
with which she is blessed
 
and my heart to her light
like the tide now is pulled . . .
she is fair, O, and bright
like the moon silver-veiled.
 
There’s a fire within her
like the sun’s leaping forth
to lap up the darkness
of night from earth's hearth
 
and my eyes to her flame
like twin moths now are drawn
till my heart is consumed.
She is brighter than dawn.
