MURRAY COUNTY POETRY

Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
Moonlit Water Garden


ebony pool, rippling
dark and oily;
pale winter moon,
ice-white and cold.
marble statue,
of fragmented self
in pearl-colored
reflections,
broken by
silver rings ~
moonlit circles
on black water;
stone cold, its
moss-covered rim
surrounds
liquid black depths,
darkly obscured, both
shallow
and deep.
