The moon silently engulfs the fountains in a brilliant bath ---
of irridescent shards of silver light.
The white lilies bathe in the ethereal glow of a million flecks ---
of crystal while the fountains laugh a metallic clangor.
The pines sigh and ponder as the soft, cool evening breeze ---
soothes and caresses them with a mild hush.
Reflected in the eyes of a frog, balancing on the metallic surface ---
of the water is the gaze of a million and one stars, parted by ---
the milky band of the galaxy's arm, and the ephemeral lights ---
that pass over us.
A rusty nail hangs feebly out of a pallid plank on the hay-strewn ---
floor of a barn, basking in the lunar lustre.
A nightingale sings out into the night, resounding around every ---
recess of the glade into which it sings; every notes reaching ---
the very depths of it's little heart, and every reed gently bending ---
with the flexing melody of the little avian chanteuse.
The Harlequin practices his dance on the stage agleam, his white ---
face blends with the luminous lunar glow and disappears into---
the cavernous reaches of the night..
