Oh beautiful moon

From heaven above

You cross our sky

For lovers to love


To chase the sun

Forever your quest

With silver light

You give your best


As I watch you

With pure delight

I pause to think

Do you know your plight


Your pull on the tides

A gentle embrace

As the oceans dance

We gaze on your face


Our lives you share

From up on high

Blessed are we

For our pearl in the sky

Hi Craig,

For eons, the moon has fascinated people all over the world.
For me, it was the first thing I looked at through a telescope, and is often a target of my camera (with varying results).
I enjoyed the write here- and the emotion you bring to the piece.
