Light from a cold moon

Light from a cold moon 
Spilled onto the surface of the lake 
And it glistened in the lambency 
Like shards of broken glass 

While the shadows from trees 
Rising from the lakeside 
Lay scattered across the expanse of inky depths 

Where the reeds gently swayed in the soft breeze
Beneath the benign glory 
By yon celestial lamp bestowed 

As the waters softly lapped at the deserted shore
Below serene heavens
Where a lofty sky coruscated in the glow
Cast by a million stars 
That studded the empyrean ceiling 
And melded into the milk white 
Of the lunar orb sublime
Which overcame the dark midnight
