A Silver Nocturne

A silver moon shines
A silvery voice echoes
Singing solitary serenades.
Tis better to love not
Than to love and hurt
In hearts' most treacherous trades.
Promises - an ancient relic
Moonlight's promise best kept.
Pity not the heart encaged
The silver bars love and protect.

This Spring (2017) I am committing to handwritten snippets of poetry wherever I can find the space to write. Letters and Pieces (2017) is a 30 poem collection written impromptu (according to prompts given by throughout the month of April (2017) for National Poetry Writing Month. As days go by, the Index for Letters and Pieces will grow.

Day 17: Today's poem is - prompted by " write a nocturne. In music, a nocturne is a composition meant to be played at night, usually for piano, and with a tender and melancholy sort of sound. Your nocturne should aim to translate this sensibility into poetic form!"

I gave my nocturne a silver tone.
