A Roman Love Affair


The ubiquitous Sol

reigns over the Roman sky

a god with mighty powers

whose wrath causes offenders to die


In an effort

to control his power

a topical discussion was held

and lasted for over an hour


Calling upon the moon

which cooled the night

a lover for Sol

causing some fright


Loved ones that have passed

become stars to serve the moon

shining over Rome

help may come soon


The lovers meet

on the days of eclipse

sharing sweet kisses

on a seasonal lips


As seasons pass

the heat turns to cold

a passionate love affair

with tales of old


The chase continues

till this very day

an eternal love affair

that will never part ways
