Stilled Waters, Serene Scene

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay

The waters of the seas are stilled
And the serene moon
Casts its benign regard
Over the placid scene below
Dispensing blandishments
Upon the seascape entire
Bathing the monumental walls that grace the red cliffs
In an albedo opalescent
That illuminates the hilltops in hues of silver
Adorning with a halo
The heights that overlook the bejewelled bay
And flooding the length of the sandy beach
With a myriad lights pearlescent
As it glisters with joy unbounded
Beneath the sublime blessings celestial
While the smooth surface of the deep
Basks in the light of pale cream
By the mighty star of night bestowed
Upon the tranquil realm untroubled
One blessed eventide
