New Moon

I looked up the sky, and there she stood,
A new phase of the ever smiling moon,
With a gorgeous charm she gladly glowed
Wearing her crescent in a concave curve,
Reminding all again of her newness come, 
And that life has come to another curve.

I reviewed my wishes and counted my blessings,
And then I resolved as I prayed by wishes made,

To be guided again like the curving moon, 
So when the convex meets the concave curve, 
To complete the cycle for another full moon,
I would have yet on my hand to count again,
A new list of blessings and wishes came, 
With the crescent of another smiling moon.

- Oliver O. Mbamara, An African Poetess.
