Moonful Of Moments


Moon light so bright
It follows you all night

Have no fear nor no worry
No need for any hurry

It’ll guide you in your darkest hour
Light galore with endless power

When your candle melts or your torch it fails
Your eyes – a boat on sea
And the moon – wind in its sails

Or stay and watch its silent reign
The moon a ball and the night its chain

The blackness has no place to hide
Its whiteness wants to be your guide

Like many eyes its surrounded by
The stars are company dotted high

Full moon fears play on your mind
Stay one step ahead not behind

Magical moon playing tricks
The man who lives there gets his kicks

He’s smiling as your pace gets faster
Staying calm you have yet to master

Oh take advantage of its faithful glow
Enjoy it fully by going slow.

Moon light so bright
It follows you all night.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
