Night Stirrings

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

This poem is in a form known as Rondeau Redouble
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as it was fun to write - MB

Night Stirrings

See the moon expend its glow
Hear whippoorwill with song to sing
Crickets chirp beyond the lights
Bats dart swiftly to new heights

Summer evenings entrance hearts
Breezes waft to calm the soul
Perfumed maidens fill my senses
See the moon expend its glow

Dew drops glimmer on the web
Across the lake dance water rings
Dusk unfolds replete in gray
Hear whippoorwill with song to sing

Mole and mouse arouse the dark
Little vermin’s dance with night
Silent raptor stills their dance
Crickets chirp beyond the lights

In the still and quiet hours
Nature shrugs in sheer delight
As dawn’s fingers grasp the earths edge
Bats dart swiftly to new heights

Dear Zane,
this is magical, I could see the beautiful scenery you painted and hear the sounds you evoked. I did not know this form but I can see the scheme. Very nice and very well done, my friend.

Thank you.
Love and joy.

Thank you dear friends.
I was dabbling around a few years back in another poetry website and someone brought this venue of poetry to my attention. Sometimes what I've written a few years ago jumps up and surprises me.
I think it's always good to revisit and pull out those past aspects of ourselves that didn't seem so significant then, yet somehow can add delight to the present.
Love and Blessings,

Zane
