To the Moon

You wax and wane, our lunar friend,

from your full circle to the crescent end.

Our moods and tides are your fine gift,

as songs are inspired, that you give a lift.

Shinning on, you, our harvest moon,

reflected in rivers, and making a sweet song.

When our moods are blue and shared by you,

this brings to us, for our memories, to long.

Moon of wonder, moon so bright,

share your moonbeams, to light up the night.

Release the dark from its blackened state,

to bathe the landscape, as your fate.

Adding the charm your halo brings,

as it revolves about you in concentrate rings.

Gold and silver treasures are seen,

as the darkness falls, and the hour is keen.

We depended upon you, over eons past,

having given a measure of time to last.

Changing tides, for every creatures need,

by your influence, the spell to succeed.

You circle our earth, and are a welcome sight,

about our world in a rhythmical flight.

Over timeless voyages, your pathway to lead,

as sailors sail, on oceans, to heed.

Shine on, and know that you are a valued love,

as you watch over us from high above.

A part of our lives you'll forever to remain,

like the comfort felt in a welcomed rain.

With your beacon to lead our way,

a better world seen, and this forever to stay,

Amid the stars in celestial heights, all lain,

you're a treasure to us, and ours to gain.
