Romance of the Moon

Looking up at the night sky

it’s there like a beacon

like a lantern shining down

its warm glow

makes nights magical

and I very well know

that thousands of stars

will twinkle all about

here is no need for artificial

or even candlelight

it will guide you along

as you walk in the night

it lights up the river

making it look like molten silver

bobs along upon the sea

making a bridge of moonbeams

it follows us along

creating a bright path to follow

the moon and the night clouds

blown by night breezes

play with light and shadow

peaking from behind

clouds floating in the night sky

love to see it in the light of day

before it goes to bed

as it says good morning

to the sun

that has risen in the sky

moonlit nights

are meant for romance

dancing under the spotlight

just like lovers from the past

wanting it to last

like in some magical story

where a bit of sparkling moon dust

turns into tiny fairies

but then the first streaks of dawn

appear in the sky

the moon gives a knowing wink

it will be back soon

that romantic moon

There's nothing so beautiful as the sun shining in the night sky, it's there for lovers. Love the video....

I've always loved the moon (and stars). I think it's really cool when you can still see the moon even after the sun has come up in early morning.

It certainly is. I love seeing a full moon with the sun almost beside it Shauna. The moon and stars really inspire.
