Queen of the Night

‘Queen of the Night’

Walk

through the dark

to gather cobwebs of dew,

stars in your hair,

and a chorus of fireflies

to light your way.

Glide

with the moon

as your mistress

on high.

Stand

in your light,

a glowing beam

from heaven

that fills you

with unstoppable radiance.

Rise,

cinema goddess,

to illuminate

the dark theater

of the whole world.
