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.
