“The ivory moon” #poem #poetry #writing

The ivory moon 
Intoned lullabies most ardent 
Rich in earnest endearments 
For to serenade and enchant 
The bejewelled lake 
Whose placid expanse sparkled 
Beneath a star studded sky 
Of inimitable indigo blue 
As the elegant monarch of night 
Drew ever nearer 
To the tranquil sapphire waters
Afore the night ebbed to nought
A tender adieu for to bide temporary 
To its paramour beloved
And a prompt return for to vow
The lovers’ tryst assuredly to keep
Upon the very morrow
~ d.a.simpson ~

  1. lune ou moon…beautiful allitération 🤍
    ah, ma langue maternelle…un mystère mais j’ai fait mes études scolaires dans un pays francophone dans la langue française, j’ai même fait des études au niveau de doctorat mais these days owing to lack of opportunity mon français est moins fort qu’à une autre époque. Hors que vous j’ai l’impression que votre langue maternelle est le français. But it’s a near thing, I could be wrong because your English is faultless flawless flowing fluent. Peut-être que vous êtes bilingue as I have certainly been.
    Very best wishes and thank you for inspiring such a lengthy comment on my part 😊

  2. Nos langues maternelles et celles parlées, écrites ensuite durant nos études ou certains moments de vie, ce que vous décrivez si élégamment…ces langues sont une chance, une richesse de sens et d’émotions.
    Merci pour ces si jolis mots, ceux de votre poésie ou ceux de votre message juste au-dessus, je vous cite: «  your English is faultless flawless flowing fluent »

    Quelques années à étudier une langue anglaise scolaire, quelques voyages à Londres et alentours, quelques rencontres et le bonheur de pouvoir approcher les subtiles variations, délicates sensibilités

  3. Thank you for your wonderful thoughts. I truly admire your fluency all the more in view of the fact that your opportunities to truly know the English language seem to have been fleeting. Your final words “le bonheur de pouvoir approcher les subtiles variations, délicates sensibilités” encapsulates your gift for the English language. Despite having studied in the UK at degree level and having worked in the UK the English language still doesn’t come naturally to me. Bravo on your natural ability to absorb the substance and subtleties of this language. It’s the idiomatic knowledge and usage that is challenging to learn. Keep up the great work.
