Upon The Moon (poem)

A lover cast his hopes upon the moon

For everything is sight was magic strewn

And with his dream this moment to commune

A memory which nothing could impugn


And so he took his longing by the hand

As all imagination went as planned

All scents and sounds fell under his command

Perfection beyond will to understand


They found a place to wonder at the moon

Where they could take in blessing heaven planned

The stars and dream now followed some command

No cloud no shrouds no feelings to impugn


And so he gripped his chances by the hand

As at her feet his heart’s desires were strewn

With endless silence would his soul commune

A darkness which he couldn’t understand


Then came response which tears would not impugn

As with the face of death they both commune

And in some lonely ditch was body strewn

A lover cast his hopes upon the moon

Music only

Sad poem, Martin.

Death is the great conquer.

Music video is perfect for this poem.

Sad surprise ending. That's what comes of mooning around.
