Earthshine – Noun

“The faint illumination of the part of the moon not illuminated by sunlight, as during crescent phase, caused by the reflection of light from the earth”

The only thing visible

In the crisp, night sky

Was the ever faint

Earthshine of the

Crescent moon.

It breathed life

Over the hills,


Tree tops,

And sleeping houses.

A stray beam of light,

Caught a circle

Of white stones,

As the fae folk,

Wee kind,




And Elves

Came out to play.
