‘A milk white light’

A milk white light 
from a vast moon 
shimmered aloft 
At the midnight hour 

It seeped through the thin gauze 
afloat in the empyrean ceiling 
With an ethereal lambency 
that pervaded the celestial heights 

While a serene indigo 
abounded in the sublime empty 

Where a spectral glow 
from a distant realm
Emanated from a sea of stars
as they roamed the vast scape
For to dispel a tenebrous darkness 
and clothe the skeletal trees
which graced the vernal land 
With a pearlescent lustre 
one deserted winter’s night
