Wide Eyes Absorbing That Magical Scene--By Robert Lindley--United States

Wide Eyes Absorbing That Magical Scene

Upon night's clear sky, moon glowing its best
Soft breeze, swirling gently in silent tune
That gleaming star shining high in the West
Companion for Heaven's striking big moon!

Wide eyes absorbing true magical scene
With its proof we are souls wanting to fly
Earthen ground reflecting brightest moon-sheen
Tears born of pure joy, not a sad, sad cry

As dawn comes to wipe, to give us new views
We may feel pains of sorrow losing this
Should we not celebrate having the two
For surely either lost, we'd dearly miss!

Should mankind ponder why such great, bright gifts
Tis Heaven's view to earth that so uplifts!

Robert Lindley is poet from the Southern USA. He has been writing poetry since 1969. Robert writes with the intent to offer others words to enjoy and with high hopes he may inspire and brighten lives in some way.


  1. Dear Robert,
    Thank you for this well-crafted sonnet. I like your use of assonance in different places: "shining high" in line 3 of stanza 1 and "wide eyes" in line 1 of stanza 3. Wonderful message best of all.

  2. Robert,
    Such a lovely, inspirational poem.

  3. I love it! From beginning to end it touches my heart. Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece, Robert. Continued blessings!
