A Moored Riddle


Question

The distant Sun within her nest

Smiling beneath the light

Sits high upon a field of grass

So greening and so bright.

Upon an emerald sea now shines

Her fire in the night

And burns within a golden bowl

All moored as if a kite.

***********************************

(Note: The answer is very specific and will likely require some investigation once you have an idea of what it could be generally, so general guesses will not be accepted, sorry to say. Example: if the answer were "pepper" I would not accept "spice.")

Easter eggs? You know, in their little baskets with the fake plastic green grass under them, and they're nested inside, and they have golden yolks, and...... you know what, I'm going to stop now.

Hmm.

Liberty Island, with the Statue of Liberty and its torch.

The setting Sun within her nest <- Liberty Island is WEST of most of New York City!

Smiling beneath the light <- The statue itself doesn't literally smile, but the idea's reasonable.

Lies high upon a field of grass

So greening and so bright. <- Liberty Island has a lawn beneath the Statue of Liberty

Across an emerald sea now shines

Her fire in the night <- The torch is lit.

And burns within a golden bowl <- the light is in a "golden bowl" of sculpted flame, even if the rest of the statue is green

Moored as if a kite. <- it is held upraised, moored by the arm.

No Jipp. Keep in mind, you first need to have a "general" idea of what this might be, as offered through word clues presented in the puzzle, and only through investigating this option will you nail it. Discerning which ones might apply to the "general" idea is the trick. This is certainly one of the more difficult riddles I've posted but well within the deciphering sphere of you and others on this forum, who so frequently surprise me with your analytic skills.
