AN APRIL MOON

The final April moon will soon take leave.
Contentedly, he navigates the sky.
He knows not that his passing makes us grieve,
Nor hears the tone of our collective sigh.

For thirty eves, the moon has cast his spell
Releasing inspiration from his core.
Yet, now has come the time to say farewell,
As April’s moon will strum our hearts no more.

No gathering beneath his fetching smile,
Nor once-upon-a-timing ‘neath his glow.
Though next year, he will once again beguile;
Inspiring prose and verse to daily flow.

Our melancholy hearts will melt away
For there will be a new moon come what May.

Marie Elena

My last poem of the 2010 April Poem-a-Day Challenge.  Phew!  I truly don’t know if it is acceptable to end an otherwise solemn sonnet with a bit of humor.  (?)  It’s been a sometimes grueling, but always pleasurable experience.  I’ve learned much once again from the talented poetic community at Poetic Asides. 

Welcome, May.

  1. Nicely done! Gotta love those new moons. New Moons = New Adventures. Looking forward to another year of collaboration across the lake. Soon, we'll start to flesh out a lot of background poems of our towns, upbringing, land marks/monuments. Sort of a poetic tour guide and our relationship to all of it. I'm excited!

  2. Walt, I'm with ya all the way! I've got some more "home" writing to work on, for certain. Ideas that went by the wayside during the April Challenge. Ellenelizabeth, thank you so much for your stopping by again, and for your sweet words of encouragement. It's sad to see the PAD come to a close. I STILL haven't had a chance to read the final day's words. I've so enjoyed your offerings this month, and hope for the chance to continue to do so for the Wednesday prompts. Thanks again, and many blessings to you!ME
