One Winter Night

How deep resolves an achromatic moon
Shining brightist when all gloaming begets
Will comfort me late past an aft'a noon
Sinking deepest in silent silhouettes

Happy stars watch you pull the tides along
The rolling surf crests high her icy glaze
Come night ne'er blinds a glowing sky so strong
Nor an earth to rest in her brumal days

Winter paints a barren landscape numb
Soundless chilled by shades of snow and moon
Fleeing air heavy down from heights succumb
Spilling deeply into hushed meadows strewn

Burning into night stars shining so bright
The vast hibernal sky 'comes black and white

Hi Chris

The art of sonnet writing on this site will never be lost so long as you continue to post here. Another sublime offering.
