Treasure Island

Miranda Van Yperen

I Watch The Moon From My Maple Tree


As I watch the moon
So quietly
From high above
In my maple tree

I see the stars
That shine all night
They speak to me
Making sure I'm alright

My life is hard
But I'm ok
Watching the show
With nothing to say

As the moon and the stars
Dance the night away
I sit and stare
Like I can't in the day

When I'm up so high
I feel so free
Happy and safe
In my maple tree

The moon is the sun
That shines in the dark
I can see it from bed
Or from way in the park

It helps me a lot
The moon is my guide
And 'I love that old tree'
I queitly sighed

    Miranda, this is beautiful. I like the way you described the moon and stars dancing the night away. What a lovely scene to watch from your maple tree. (Report) Reply

    'The moon is the sun/ That shines in the dark', interesting, the lines suggest the moon rules the sky at night, while the sun rules the sky at day. Good piece. (Report) Reply

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
