A Moon Ode

Oh, vibrant orb that shapes our night
You too, like us, reflect the light
And rest in shadow now and then
But cast your spell on tide and wind

Oh, mistress moon, the darkness break
And show yourself on sea and lake
Behold your beauty from afar
Like us, not earth and not yet star

Oh, queen of time and myst'ry old
Your magick touches to our souls
For like us, you too soon are gone
Leaving just dreams to think upon

Oh, wondrous moon, oh, lady fair
You light our paths through dark despair
So thank you, as you wax and wane
Reminding us of life's long chain

-- Graybeard Dances

At our moon viewing
party, there is no one with
A beautiful face.

-- Basho, Japanese haiku master.
