* The Moon Is....... - Poem by Ernestine Northover

A Poem by my Great Niece, Kitty Cotton aged 12 years.

The Moon is a pearl;
sat in the night sky.
Precious and beautiful,
it shall never die.

The Moon is a ball of silk,
dancing with the stars.
Floating elegantly in the darkness,
it won’t ever be behind bars.

The Moon is a torch,
lightening the night,
to help us find our way,
and just hanging in the sky,
smiling down on me.
