She wails in sorrow.

Upon the railing

A cascade of reflection

Draped in a silver glow

She wails in sorrow

 

Like flowing moonlight

Her gentle radiance

A spectre of the remaining hour

In dawn’s red glare she fades

 

Until again I see her there

A barren dais in the snow

The chilling wind hounds me no more

And my lady’s face watches as I go

The picture is as close to what I wanted as I could find. I can't believe how difficult it is finding a picture of a ghost on a balcony, in a fantasy sense. So many pics of blurry anomalies and photoshopped "ghosts" in windows. Anyways, thank you for reading, Keke-bear!

So many elegant descriptions here. I especially liked how you compared her radiance to flowing moonlight. c:

I had a specific image in my head that prompted the poem and that glowing radiance like moonlight I needed to get across. Thank you for reading, sweetheart.
