Mrs Moon - Poem by Roger McGough

Mrs Moon
sitting up in the sky
little old lady
with a ball of fading light
and silvery needles
knitting the night

    Please help: did he write a poem with something like: 'Sometimes when I've had a few, I ask the world to step outside'? It sounds like it should be him. Can anyone identify it? (Report) Reply

    I like this and have been a fan for ages. Just posted my poems on this site -I've been keeping them to myself for years. Magic is in a similar vein. I'd be thrilled to bits to get any form of comment from you.
