XVII: The Sovereign of the Night

Twilight brings a certain air
of florescent violet brilliance fair
as brittle diamond sparks appear
in ancient assemblies bright and clear.
And when the moon rises like the sun
to rule the darkness when day is done,
like a smiling king over a blessëd land
with a flaming sceptor in his hand,
the stars all kneel and dim their light
to honor the Sovereign of the Night.
