Treasure Island

Moon Song

I looked into the eyes of the moon
and he smiled,
and said,
go soon
you'll never,
won't ever,
again be.

I stood there cold, mind unfolded
to endless whys,
uncertain sighs.
I must go
I know
can be again.

The moon looked back, reflecting thoughts
and winked his eye
when spotlights caught,
so go
you know
if ever
is to be.

    Hi Sally,

    I couldn't leave a comment for Summer Shade which I thought was brilliant with sun moving through the day and you caught out by the suns rays... superb penning! However i then found this one! This has almost a child like glee and yet sombre and sorrowful twist to it. Love the quick rhyme and flow that only lets you pause on the moon line and his thoughts... really well thought out and simple in delivery but so breath taking and emotive. I love your style Sally, keep up these wonderful ditties of yours!
