IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON AN ANGEL TREADS

She walks in beauty, like the night,
dark and sultry, mysterious.
She is a curious blend of strength
and gentility with the ability
to melt my heart and soothe
a tired and battered soul.
With each metered step,
she treads in beauty, like the night.

She walks in symphony, like a song,
long and lilting, lifting spirits.
She is melodic as I hear it;
tempo and meter will not
defeat her confidence;
A sensuous affluence,
with each metered step,
she treads in symphony, like a song.

She walks in love. Like an angel,
she is ethereal and blessed.
She is an amorous heart
who will start to spark a lonely heart
with a beauty that exudes
a lyrical whisper laced with affection.
With each metered step,
she treads in beauty; in symphony; in love.

    This is so beautiful, Walt.

    I love this part:

    “She is an amorous heart
    who will start to spark a lonely heart
    with a beauty that exudes
    a lyrical whisper laced with affection.”

    I especially like the use of “laced,” as it other connotations … drugs and lingerie or undergarments, for example.
