Treasure Island

Rachel Nichols

O' Silvery Moon

o' silvery moon,
from where did you come
you shine your light upon us
a reflection of the sun!

o' silvery moon,
so serene and so bright
you're warm sweet smile
is lighting up our night!

o' silvery moon,
until life's golden end
you visit us every night
you are a loyal friend!

o' silvery moon,
you twirling we love to see
the sky is your ballroom
and you dance so gracefully!

0' silvery moon,
always looking for romance
I know where love is
it's found in paris, france!

    This is a beautiful poem. I love the nighttime sky, both moonless nights when the stars are bright points of light and nights with a full moon, with the cool silvery light brightening the sleeping world. (Report) Reply

    Well, love used to be found in Paris... I've been tracking it down around the gardens of Buxembourg but managed to gather nothing except thorns and pigeons feathers... but well, every myth should be glossed...* * (Report) Reply

    Hi Rachel The moon-goddess Diana is very happy with your homage to her. I prefer her to the Man in the Moon myth. There's a volume of poems by a self-proclaimed feminist poet called, THE MOON IS ALWAYS FEMALE, and I felt that feminine presence of nurturing, caring, smiling sweetly, offering grace impartially throughout your poem. And locating the final stanza in Paris was inspired - I walked through moon-drenched Parisian streets one summer long ago, night after night, and only encountered others who were moon-rapt like me.
