Treasure Island

Gillena Cox

(1950)

Blue Moon


Early nightfall, a blue moon,
The year ends with a suprlus;
Tigers waltz to new year's tune,
Claws and teeth hide in the gait;
In the evening's cool, a blue moon,
As clouds fade into oblivion;
The hungry night spreads her rune,
Over jingle bells and Xmas lights;
Soon manger songs will be jejune;
The count down to Auld Lang Syne,
Will crescendo under the blue moon

Poem of the Day

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
