Hunter's Moon


I gingerly followed my father as he

strode out into the night.

With our dogs Midnight and Shadow

keeping us in their sight.

It was an October night with a

beautiful full moon.

My father explained that this was a

Hunter's full moon.

This moon comes up as soon as

the sun disappears.

The lack of darkness does not set

aside my fears.

Although hunting for animals is very

deep rooted.

To this task my heart was truly not


I was so glad that night we came back

with no prey.

Did my father arrange this, I really

can't say.
