Wintry Circuit




Between the snows, the winter earth is bare 
Its fleeting beauty shifted to the skies
Where Plieades blushes at a candid stare   
But casts her splendor on averted eyes.

The moon is briefly just a crooked smile
Content to share its glory with the stars
Then swells to take the spotlight for awhile
Until it rises waning under Mars.

Now dawn is gray; the stars have lost their shine
Cloud cloaked, the radiant moon has vanished   
Flakes fall and drift and make the land benign    
And take the stage until the snow is banished.  




About the photo: The moon was added in Photoshop, but it is about how I remembered it.  
This isn't intended for scientific accuracy, but instead, to illustrate the poem.


Linking with Skywatch Friday
