Amazing was the thought
That ’twas the moon seen that morn.
All gaze directed towards the sky,
Conviction seeking that it was the sun.
Forsooth, ’twas but indeed the moon
Up yonder in the sky clear blue.
As it lingered in the morning sky
Its presence a message of hope brought,
That boons of certain do appear, if only
We with heedful measure discern their essence
When of sudden they present in full view.
For although, the night sky its domain be,
Yet it was there, brilliant in the daylight
And oh, what a wondrous sight…
Indeed a blessing, and not in disguise
Tolling aloud, a message of pleasant assurance
That e’en if life’s pattern unchanging appear
Often a reminder comes along to boldly declare
That the exceptional in nature also doth transpire
…Thus the moon by day.
