Crescent Moon


The night
………….was dark
…………………………but you
………………………………….were there,
………………………………………………………so fair,
…………………………………………………………….to clothe
…………………………………………………………………night sky
……………………………………………………………………..with gold
………………………………………………………………………….thin glare.
……………………………………………………………………………Oh Moon,
…………………………………………………………………………..your beams
………………………………………………………………………………that shine
………………………………………………………………………………so bright
……………………………………………………………………………..in night’s
……………………………………………………………………………black air,
……………………………………………………………………..will show
………………………………………………………………..so sweet
………………………………………………………….to share
………………………………………………..the love
……………………………………..you spare
………………………..to those
…………who view
you there.

Author Notes:

The moon is always spellbinding, but the crescent moon is very special.

This poem is a Monometer Poem
A Monometer poem is written in one iambic foot (two syllables per line). The strong accent must always be on the second syllable, in order to keep it iambic. It can be as long as the poet likes, but at least 10 lines. This is a very good poetic form to teach iambic meter.
