Attempted #frapalymo

Night is like a silent sea
reflected in the sky.
I raise my arms above my head,
into the ocean I dive.
Stars adorn the barren floor. 
The moon illuminates the waves
that push me back onto the shore,
expels me from my grave.

—Nortina


frapalymoThis poem is written as part of #frapalymo which Bee will be translating into English for us at The Bee Writes…  Today’s prompt is on the classical side. It is the first line, “night is like a silent sea,” from the poem, “The Night-Flower,” by Joseph von Eichendorff. As the original German poem looks to have a rhyme scheme, I decided to embrace the classical theme altogether and give my poem a rhyme scheme as well.
