Love - A Shadow In The Moonlight - Poem by Paul Warren

The moon was so bright when you walked along the path
You cast a shadow in the moonlight as you were bathed
And the moon reflected on the sea like a silvery boat
As across the sky between the clouds it did float

On the cliff overlooking it all was a cottage built sturdy with care
By a sailor who ended his roaming on oceans stormy and fair
You see the cottage was built for his love who died one year
Whilst he was on the San Francisco run and he was not there

As the years went by the stories of him grew
How he'd sit in his cottage brooding his time through
And they say on this moonlight night he quietly died
And she returned to him as his lover again as time transpired.
