Blue Moon - Poem by Gillena Cox

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
(2009)

    Very nice Gillena. I enjoyed it. I don't think lot of people know about what's referred to as a 'Blue Moon'...., which I believe is when two full moons happen in one month. HAPPY NEW YEAR...! ! ! Warmest regards, Trade. (Report) Reply
