THE MOON

  • THERE is a lovely lady,
  • Whom I have often seen,
  • She’s fair and bright and beautiful,
  • And she was born a queen.
  • She looks both mild and gentle,
  • Though she lives in regal state,
  • And her attendant nobles
  • In countless myriads wait.
  • Her mien is humble, and with them
  • Her dignity she shares,
  • She would not that her lustrous eye
  • Should dim the light of theirs.
  • Upon the ground her beaming smiles
  • And blessings fall unheard,
  • She kisses every folded flower
  • And every silent bird.

  • If, when we draw our curtains,
  • We draw them not too tight,
  • She steals a glance into our room
  • And wishes us good‐night!

E.K.
