Poems For The Unbelievers

I believe poems are only snippets and still pictures that are described with flowery words and figurative language while not going as in-depth as books do.

But this is a collection of poems that I find likable.

La Fuite De La Lune
Oscar Wilde

To outer senses there is peace,
A dreamy piece on either hand
Deep silence in the shadowy land,
Deep silence where the shadows cease.

Save for a cry that echoes shrill
For some lone bird disconsolate;
A corncrake calling to its mate;
The answer from the misty hill.

And suddenly the moon withdraws
Her sickle from the lightening skies,
And to her sombre cavern flies,
Wrapped in a veil of yellow gauze.
