The moon was full and the night was cool,
Windows were kept open, breaking the rule.
They lay in the bed with the curtains pulled aside
So they could see the full moon, smiling outside.
The world has many moon gazers, just as he.
Many of them I'm sure would be pleased to see,
The moon at full bloom, oh what a pleasant sight!
Some will write poems and some will go quiet.
Past midnight when the outside sky was alight,
Poured into their room the soft ambient moonlight.
As traces fell on their faces, she dispensed with her pillow,
To rest on his outstretched arm, her moonlit face aglow.
They had some pillow talks, they had some fun.
And all acts of love were lovingly done.
Like birds they nestled under each others' wings,
And quietly fell asleep, amid their moonlight musings.
