Ode To Moon

Ah! Mysterious Moon!
Why do you come every night
And spread your cool dim light?
Your beauty is for us a consecration
That provides us with contemplation
Are you really a concrete substance
Or merely an illusion to satisfy our glance?

Ah! Wonderful Warrior!
You attract us always from your speed
And sometimes from your noble deed
Superior to stars and inferior to sun
Among so many forces you are the one
Do you tend to make us always realize
God made you to grant nature a prize?

    You provide a ne dimension to look at the moon. Traditionally:

    Moon is meant for children's delight,
    Moon is for love's fancy flight,
    On moonlit nights there is love tide,
    Moon stands for enchanting bride.

    Moon cols down an agitated mind,
    It provides you the peace of mind. (Report) Reply

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
