Starlets and Shrouds


By December Rose

‘Tis a faint halo that hems in the moon
A reminder that it is enslaved here, too
By its own beauty, its Clair de Lune
Much like the hearts it shines to woo

Are we not all but silhouette
As such, ’tis only shadows we beget
The shrouds that encompass each starlet
Illuminate dreams and prayers unmet

Footprints on the sand, then, are soul-deep
And as I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
That, into the world, my light might seep
