Diana

You are not the goddess

I thought i knew; nor the huntress

Of the moon.

 

Your youthful face now stained

And scarred by the pain

Of what you really are.

 

Straying into that solemn night

I saw a sadness come to light;

A fairness shone through the veil,

A hidden beauty soon revealed.

 

And in the white-wing’d dawn

I spread across the sky,

Cupping your silver breast, long-

Ing to carress your star-lit eye.

 

On a bed of clouds displayed,

Like a tender flower, you lay;

A crescent smile soured.

 

As the dim light reflected;

Your cold eyes rejected

The ardor within my soul.

 

And in our star-crossed gaze

I saw in you the dream decay

Before our eyes could save

Their virtue.
