A moonlit night is one of the beautiful phenomena of nature. It occurs when the moon rises in the sky. The moon may be crescent or full, but it is beautiful in either form.
We count six seasons in a year. In each season we see the moon for two fortnights with a break in between. But the moon in Autumn appears in its best.
The autumnal moon beams its mellow light. The moon is gloss like a piece of glass. it looks beautiful in the blue autumnal sky. The sky in Autumn is clear. Here and there a few patches of white clouds float swiftly. The moon plays hide-and-seek with these bulging pieces of clouds. It is very pleasant to look at the sky at the time and to hear the night-birds play their sweet notes in the moonlit sky.
The earth seems to be washed with moon-light. The groves and tarbours look beautiful. Their leaves and fawning look glossy with the light of the moon. The ground under the grove looks like a chess-board. It seems to be an art of light and shade. The moon reflects on the ponds and tanks. The blue water in them looks glossy. The lilies bloom in them. They bloom in three colours-white blue and red. Little children sit round their grandmamma to hear the fairy tales or the tales about the wizards.
A moonlit night is nature's sweetest offer to mankind. It has a lasting effect the human minds. Even the grand old ladies remember their green youth when they sit alone in the moonlit night.
