Mrs Moon

Rating: 3.3


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

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. David Mounatin
