‘The nightscape’

The nightscape 
skims the hem of heaven 
at the hour of dusk 
When shadows lengthen 
and compound the mystery of night 

While a serene moon 
inclines its opaque countenance 
to’ard a distant earth 
far below this exalted dominion 

As the empyrean enigma 
which pervades the violet sky
Sparkles with an eternity of stars 
in an endless glory of luminaries 

Scattered across a taut sheet
that adorns the firmament 
A’glitter with a light preternal 
which foreknew the cosmos 

Before the very world began
