The Silver Moon


In this night and in this hour,
I will reveal my
secret power.

In this night and 12 hours past noon
underneath the light of the silver moon,
I will be arriving soon.

In this night when the moon is revealed,
my secret power will be
unsealed.

A cloak as black as night will appear
and then I can't be heard by any human ear.

I will grow fur and whiskers.
I will then be on four legs and
have cat ears.

Don't worry, I will be arriving
soon
as a cat underneath the light of the of the silver
moon.
