As evening sun lays his head
onto winter's frozen bed
the moon she rises up once more
stars they twinkle, they adore

Meteor strikes through the sky
lighting up like firefly's 
once more the moon, her head will tilt
and sun will rise from night-time’s quilt

Showtime, mother nature’s twist
sun and moon are sky's great gift
of course, they share the same great stage
yet take in turn and never rift.

    "As evening sun lays his head
    onto winter's frozen bed" a magnificent line I wished i had thought of, followed below with
    "once more the moon, her head will tilt
    and sun will rise from night-timeโ€™s quilt"
    A truly ingenious accompaniment to make a perfect completion. It is rare to have one such line in a poem but two in such resolving majesty in the same poem is transcendent indeed. Kudos for this masterpiece.
