‘A sublime orb’

A sublime orb 
of a serene evenfall  

Mystical heavenly light 
silent enigma celestial 
of legend and fable 
As old as time itself 

Which abides in dreams 
and pervades the visions 
Of those who dwell upon earth

Dangled aloft in the firmament 
when the shadows of day had lengthened

Lustrous pearl a’shimmer 
‘gainst a sheet of indigo 
Studded with a million stars of diamond white

It cast a pale glow 
that seeped across the heavens 

After day to night had turned
and the shroud of midnight 
Drifted like a gentle breeze
across a slumbering realm
