Slowly, silently, now the moon
Shines upon us, bright as the noon.
Waxing and waning with a pull on the mind
The makes us and breaks us with a mental decline.
Lunacy they say is hidden in that glow
That starts so far away, so soft and lo–
With each quarter, each half and each full
The sea is renewed, sands stirred by its’ pull.
Night comes alive, the dark things come in its’ wake.
The people of the underbelly, emerge with a shake.
Off come the barriers with the cry of the loon.
Slowly, silently, now the moon.
