One Moon & A Million Moods

Thoughtful & sincere ... a sweet soul, dear to me, sent this to my way.


If you found yourself captivated by the world she stirs...there is also this fanciful & imaginative little poem by Zora Bernice May Cross, which you might enjoy.


The New Moon


What have you got in your knapsack fair,
White moon, bright moon, pearling the air

Spinning your bobbins and fabrics free,
Fleet moon, sweet moon, in to the sea?

Turquoise and beryl and rings of gold
Clear moon, dear moon, ne’er to be sold?

Roses and lilies, romance and love,
Still moon, chill moon, swinging above?

Slender your feet as a white birds throat,
High moon, shy moon, drifting your boat

Into the murk of the world awhile,
Slim moon, dim moon, adding a smile.

Tender your eyes as a maiden’s kiss,
Fine moon, wine moon, no one knows this,

Under the spell of your witchery,
Dream moon, cream moon, first he kissed me.

Zora Bernice May Cross

Mel...it is pretty interesting, isn't it! I tell you, I absolutely love to learn about other people...
it really helps me to learn much about myself & the more I know about me, the truer I become. Butterfly effects flittering... Much Love Girl!
