Oh, and Sappho

I wrote this as a tweet, which is an odd discipline…

Dark heaven’s bright with stars
until
the half-moon rises washes out their light
silvers the dusky world
silvers the dusky world.

The repetition was an artefact of cutting and pasting, but works anyway, I think.

The moon is down, the Pleiades are set
Midnight ticks past and yearning until wet
I lie alone
