The Sun Sprite and the Moonbeam Fairy

Sunset Moon
 It was a balmy summer's eve,
       The western sky ablaze;
The sun sprites were all set to leave
       Upon the glowing rays.

The whispery dusk was falling soon,
       The evening very nigh,
When, quite before its time, the moon
       Rose up in the purpling sky.

One sun sprite lagged behind to see
       The moon and its curious beams—
It was a lovely vision he
       Had only seen in dreams.

Then, suddenly he saw a sight
       That caused his breath to catch;
For, on the moon's bright bridge of light
       He saw his perfect match:

A moonbeam fairy beautiful,
       With silver wings and hair,
That made the sun sprite dutiful
       Fall straight in love with her.

The moonbeam fairy gazed in turn,
       Admiring his golden eyes,
His skin that with dayfire burned,
       Unseen in nightlit skies.

Shyly, each uttered a greeting,
       And soon they were deep in talk;
Their hearts as one were beating
       As they hand in hand did walk.

And very soon the day was done,
       The sun was going to bed—
He had to catch the last ray of sun,
       Or, sunless, he'd be dead.

The sun sprite bid a fond goodbye
       And swore he would return;
The moonbeam fairy gave a sigh
       and said, for him she'd yearn.

A sun sprite cannot live in night
       Nor moonbeam fay by day;
Thus, only in the soft twilight
       Together they may stay.

The sprite a child was of the day,
       The fairy of the night;
But True Love always finds a way,
       For such is True Love's might.

Thus, every time you see the sky
       By sun and moon both graced,
Know, sprite and fairy are nearby
       Enclasped in a warm embrace.

so beautiful, and so poignant... reminding me of something from years ago i'm still trying to remember...

the tensions of night and day, of love offered and accepted in whatever ways, the beauties of differing souls reaching out in acceptance and acknowledgement... these are the things i long for and despair of in their absence...

thank you for offering me the a new key, with which i perhaps could open the vault of my own life and re-find value somewhere...

thank you...
