The Eclipse

by Meghan Renaud

Vase, a Ceramics piece by Sarah Wang.

How peculiar I find the sun and moon

Though the lively star boasts the song of light

The tranquil lune hums a delicate tune

Sustaining the contest of day and night

But with the dawn of ev’ry century

The twin spheres reconcile in the heavens

And their souls embrace so familiarly

With a fondness that no one can question 

All the stars gaze upon this homecoming

It bears not the fleeting spell of comets

Found in this celestial intermingling

Is immortal affection and promise

And so I yearn for our own grand eclipse

And so it will be our spirits do mix
