A Moon Within Reach


Last night the Moon was so hot; it took a drip in the lake
I swam out to meet it, and float on its wake
It was a glow with a billion firefly lights
If given the chance I would've basked there all night
But the Moon couldn't stay, for heaven beaconed it home
It watched me swim back to shore and left me on the loam
There's nothing more simple to make me swoon
Then to spend a few moments with a breathtaking Moon
