Silently fell the hour of night

Silently fell the hour of night 
upon the tranquil scene 

Silent as dust 
settling in a deserted castle 

It came to rest amid a moonlit realm 
immersed in the enigma 
of a velvet darkness 
Shrouding the land 
with the veil of midnight

And a serene stillness abounded 

As a million stars
of diamond white 
glistered like jewels
Strewn across the indigo sheet
in the inkiness of a sublime nightfall 

While the flawless surface 
of a crystalline lake
Shimmered beneath the infinite opulence 
gracing the celestial emptiness
