Selene’s lullaby

Albert Aublet 1880 [Public domain]

In the deep blue sky
Luminescent Selene preside

Bathe skyclad in moonlight
Her magic blood ignite

Then go to enchanted rest
The Goddess will send a quest

Sound of light dream’s vivify
As Selene sings her lullaby


Written for Weekly Scribblings #1: January is here, with winds that blow kisses at Poets and Storytellers United. I didn’t feel any inspiration at first, then I took a long walk in the clear moonlight…
