‘A crescent moon of diamond white’

A crescent moon of diamond white 
inclined its enigmatic countenance 
To’ard its sole companion 
at the verspertine hour 

That north star of much renown 
which glistered aloft in the cold crisp air 
Pervading the empyrean expanse 
one sublime night incipient 

Amid the darkening ceiling 
of the vaulted ev’ntide dome 
Arrayed in shimmering attire
of sapphire blue
That quivered in the cool chambers
of a nascent midnight
