Night’s Magic: Nocturna

I am flying with you afar,
on the  wings of nightingale,
to a place among stars.
Ensconcing milky moon’s glow,
on a sea of clouds we sail,
touching cold white snow.
Floating free like a feather,
we’ll hide under night’s veil,
forever to be together.
When night holds the world under a spell,
and sings beautiful lullaby,
every heart rejoices where love dwells.
Mersmerised in this magic,
memories beautify,
dreams ecstatic.
As soft starlight rolls down,
whole ambiance mystifies,
the world in a peaceful sleep drowns.

The Nocturna ( basically a nine line poetry) contains  three line lessons recited during the night. The subject must be nocturnal and it consists of three couplets linked by the rhyme of the centre line; a. b. a. c. b. c. d. b. d.
