The yellow moon hung low

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is from the collection There Are Words. It was written on a boulder by the side of the Southern Cross Route in Bray one evening as the poet walked. This was a regular habit of the poet at the time. This poem captures the moment one September evening as the sky darkened and the moon rose. Seeing people go about their lives he reflected on his own sense of loneliness despite being surrounded by so many people.

Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
