And in the dark sole night

She sat gazing the moon

Without any ray of hope

Or an imminent boon

Little did she know

The radiance of her lustrous word

Eclipsing the murkiness

It sparkled her world’s nerd

Scattering the light within

Poetry stood as if a lamppost

Illuminating her dull life

It nourished her soul like a host.
