"The important thing is not to stop questioning." ~Einstein

After every interval of a fortnight,
The queen of night comes to address,
To preach love and cascade light,
The mysterious charisma; the white dress!

As the moonlight embraces everything,
The stars blush and put on veils.
Silently, the lake keeps on smiling,
With breeze, the perfume of night sails.

The nightingale, in praise of moon,
Begins chanting a soothing song,
The charming vista is a boon,
Surely, to nirvana, it belongs.

As the bright moonlit night leaves, the craving hearts say,
"Forever-long, wish the aura would stay this way."

The author's comments:
I feel like I have fallen in love with moonlit night. The inspiration is obvious from the poem's title. I've composed it to inspire other hearts which are unaware of night's beauty - the bewitching beauty of the moonlit night!

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Haha, I love this one! It's very descriptive and aboslutely, just beautiful! I love to watch the moon, especially when it's full. The moon beams are beautiful to look at also. Thank you for sharing this! ^_^

A very pretty poem :D The only critiques I would say is to smooth out the rhythm. Especially since this is a very serene topic and tone, a smooth rhythm will really give it that extra oomph :)
