Writing Prompt #209 “It’s All in the Title”

This is my choice of title for the following prompt
https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2017/05/28/writing-prompt-207-its-all-in-the-title/

Children of the Wondering Moon

Secreted high from eyes to see,
The pale face of a child peeps,
Warm wood enfolds her tenderly,
Silently, she bows her head and weeps.
Tears like rain trickle down below,
Cascade in colours subdued and sad,
Reflections cast from the rainbow
Remembering times and joys once had.
Now alone, and called by moonlight
She says nought, but watches all,
Some say she’s the Guardian of Night,
Protector of Innocents with her Nightingale’s call.
She is a Child of the Wondering Moon,
Her presence as mystic as her name,
Taken from Mother Earth too soon,
Like a moth attracted to a flame.
For every tear, a life is spared,
Regardless of creed or age,
The autumn winds caress her hair,
Stripping the world of Evil’s rage.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
