Moonlight’s Rhapsody


As twilight falls, your eyes beckon,

cool evening breeze so slight.

White lace curtains, faintly flutter,

two amorous hearts delight.

Hide and seek moon, focus on you,

my brilliant star attraction.

Our soft lips play, fine cabernet,

flavors each chain reaction.


Mischievous grin, warm silken skin,

now safe in my embrace.

Snuggle sweetly, let’s reminisce,

enchanting escapades retrace.

Our crescent moon, advises more time,

patient gentle affection.

Candlelight dies, dreams soon arrive,

content in love’s perfection.

A note from Chris

This poem was inspired, in part, by a 100 year old family homestead near my home. It is a very stately two-story prairie farmhouse. I have always wondered about the everyday lives of the five  generations who lived and loved there. There is a beautiful upstairs bedroom with the original glass windows and white lace curtains looking out on the grounds with large pecan and oak trees.  One night I sat in that bedroom looking out at a resplendent full moon.  I wondered how many of those family members had looked out of those very same windows at night and dreamed their own dreams.  What was going on in their lives at the time?  Who were they loving?  Were they happy and feeling loved?   That is how it all began and this is the result. I hope you enjoy.
