The Moon

Imagine us

Under the moon

We ignore its beauty

Artemis gives light


In our days of old

Respect was common

The moon is our companion

Not just a figure, but a friend


Artemis grows solemn

Her light shines dimmer

Cloudy nights hide her blurry eyes

And she longs for our love


We gave it freely, long ago

Built temples, statues, altars

The moon, connected to our souls

We cut the bond, we broke the band


She holds back the light

She laments with each stargaze

They care not for the goddess

But for her gifts


The moon has lost its shimmer

Her face is only craters now

Still she holds hope in her heart

We will relish Artemis' love once more
