Brother Moon

A rising moon brings out the wild things
A rising moon brings out the wild things
rising moon
rising moon
end o a day and moon's duty, on guard
end o a day and moon's duty, on guard
brilliance in the darkest night
brilliance in the darkest night
on the darkest nights the moon watches over us
on the darkest nights the moon watches over us
Moon peeking from the clouds
Moon peeking from the clouds
Brother owl greets the moon friend
Brother owl greets the moon friend
with out our brother moon, our world would be so drab
with out our brother moon, our world would be so drab
a misty moon
a misty moon
a torch light in the night sky
a torch light in the night sky
a friend to be forever, our moon
a friend to be forever, our moon

Brotherhood





There is a certain special brotherhood,

a fraternal cohesion, that's so sublime,

That aged old man, a part of the moon,

our friendship, will be to last for all time.




We were each born of the round planets,

some were given gifts, those of a moon,

The circle of love, in this companionship,

Such a blessing in this fine commune.




The tides on our planet, are so pulled,

by him, as our time honored friend,

While on his silvery face, to display,

there, he puts on his big silly grin,




He watches over us all, this sentinel,

the great ones, as all of the small,

While night birds fly by his brightness,

coyotes, then give their answering call.




On the darkest of nights, shrouded mists,

by thick clouds and curtains, to resist,

His moonbeams do manage, as he persists,

making the speckled display, it so enlists.




Casting a spell of the rarest of all beauty,

over the landscape, as if were to be kissed,

The fusion of bright light and the shadows,

all strewn, in such a stunning array.to consist.




Our brother, shall never to sleep in the night,

always on duty and his respect, by all means,

He keeps his fond chores, of a responsibility,

over oceans, and across the land's scenes,




The torch light is lit, for he will never forget,

in lighted pathways, and all across the land

A night's covering, as of the wide blackness,

devoid of his devotion, to be a world, so bland.




Oh, brother moon, without you we would cry,

Our lunar companion, he, of greatest renown,

As our Creator, in His grandest benevolence,

gives our moon, as His son, a golden crown.

Amen, whonu! The moon means even more to me than the sun. In fact,the almanacs, by which farmers of yesteryear swore, were governed by the moon's phases. And so still today. The moon is a powerful factor in Mother Nature's scheme.....
