A Poem by Scott H.
"

I wanted to see the lunar eclipse tonight, more than anything. The clouds had other plans.

“Moon-Gazer Versus the Clouds”


Red moon in the sky tonight

I wish to see with my own sight

The winter solstice taking flight

Shortest day and longest night


400 years too long to wait

From back in 1638

To see it now it must be fate

How long must I anticipate?


But here I pull my slippers on

Then down the stairs and out and yon

The moon I wish to look upon

The clouds obscure, their curtain drawn


So out here in the cold I freeze

With shivering hands and sagging knees

Then it sinks it in, it dawns on me

My beloved moon I shall not see


Red moon in the sky tonight

The clouds obstructing from my sight

The winter solstice taking flight

Shortest day and longest night

I tend to find rhyme schemes like this overbearing and stretched in a slightly annoying way, but your choice of words worked perfectly. Your poetry is very intriguing!

I wonder if my children stayed up late to see . . . that trickster moon, saw it hiding behind the clouds earlier in the evening
