this vernal you

enraptured dreamer

youth through Zeus

your fair moon Selene

admirer desirous

sweet intervene

shepherding this fantasy

convergent urges
tidal surges

purging darkness from all night

made melodic
idyllic thick

heartburst immersed

new epics versed

suffusing Earth
mirth enthused rebirth:  ignite

swooning crooning lunar light.
