By Carlos Wupperman
(Contemporary American poet)
|TONIGHT the beautiful, chaste moon|
| From heavens height|
|Scatters over the bridal earth|
| Blossoms of white;|
|And springs renewed glad charms unfold|| 5|
| Endless delight.|
|Such mystic wonder the hushed world wears,|
| Evil has fled|
|Far, far away; in every heart|
| God reigns instead.
|Tonight a starving virgin sells|
| Her soul for bread.|
