Drinking 'N The Moons Beams

Rating: 3.3

DRINKING 'N THE MOON BEAMS

With a bottle of wine I sit by the flowing willow tree
Wer’re drinking alone the moon and I
, the moon above looks down on me;
I call and lift my cup to her brightness.
Drinking in the Moon beams my companion provides for free.
What a party we to are having I say, —
But if only it was a party for three,
Then we could get drunk on the moon beams,
the way it used to be,
So I seek my solace alone
Regretting I am free
The drinking, the moon and my shadow.
Is all that’s left for me!

I love the imagery you have used here Jim - a sad verse but showing not everything goes when relationships end, we have more than moonbeams if we look in the right place. A good piece in the reading too. 10 from me.
