The Cycles of the Moon

and so it begins
the night is dark like inkpots
the moon must return

 commence the cycle
a waxing luna appears
a move towards brightness

first quarter arrives
a beacon to light the way
zenith approached

hang above treetops
light bears the wolf to howl
full light in the night


moon begins to fade
onward completing cycle
soon it will be gone

classic lunar shape
waning away to nothing
while floating above

and so it completes
the night is dark like inkpots
the cycle restarts
