Memories of the Moon
Full today, gone tomorrow !
Oh fickle love,
Thou art like the
Faithless moon !
Pinning for the love that cannot be.
Crying tears of silvery dew.
Sad & Singular,
What golden orb rises above the yonder horizon !
Cool and bright,
Full of passion, tonight !
Handsome and heady,
Loves bonds binds us all!
Indeed, what else can hold aloft the silver moon
In a sky so vast ?!!?
Pinned on the bosom of the night sky,
By tender, tenter hooks of love,
The sickle moon !
Passion and Pain !!
With such effort had I effaced thy memory from my mind.
Delving deep in to my soul, why didst thou bring forth a flood of
Cruel autumn moon!
Moved by such solemn beauty,
Rivers rise and oceans climb cliffs so high!
My heart is also stirred by the sight of the autumn full moon.
Rising above the oak and the pine,
Autumn moon casts shadows in a restless pool.
Oh! For the memories of spring!
