The Moon and the Sun-Villonnet

The Moon and the Sun

The bold full moon rises in the east at sunset.
Her face can clearly be seen over the roof tops,
As the sun takes his curtain call and says goodnight.
Though I welcome the moon, I shall miss the sun yet.
The best moonrises happen, safe for you to bet,
At both the vernal and autumnal equinox
When the moonrise and sunset occur together.
The bold full moon rises in the east at sunset.
For all its beauty, the moon is in the sunís debt.
Even when clouds obscure the rising of the moon,
The sun paints the clouds with brilliant streaks of color.
Though I welcome the moon, I shall miss the sun yet.
The bold full moon rises in the east at sunset,
The wondrous Moon Goddess in all of her splendor.
Though I welcome the moon, I shall miss the sun yet.
Author's Notes:
Contradictory as it may seem, I am a night-owl who loves to watch the sunrise.  This form is a Villonnet.  It is a hybrid of the Villanelle and the Sonnet.  I used the French form of the sonnet with 12 syllables per line.

Very nice work! I love the nights...and have grown to be more of a night person as I get older. Mornings are strictly for the birds! LOL. That might be because the kids are always bickering as they get ready for school, though....I might  grow to like mornings a bit better when the kids aren't fighting so much. Morning grouches make the mornings not so desirable!

Great job...
