… this poem reminded me of a poem I found while going through my mother’s belongings after she left this world. I think anyone that is a passionate person has felt this way. This poem was handwritten on very yellowed paper tucked into a book, at the bottom was written unknown author. I have googled the heck out of it and cannot find where it’s been published.…
Hello flypolkadottedbutterfly Reaching For Daylight,
It is both touching and fitting that this poem named “Full Moon Song” is duly discovered by you amongst your mother’s belongings and saved from oblivion. I have also done my part to preserve this poem at a special post of mine published at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2012/10/02/if-my-name-were-moon-tonight/
Please enjoy the post to your heart’s content.
Happy May and Sunday to you! 🙂
Full Moon Song 🌕
And what if your vows prove false in time?
And, what if I’m left to weep.
Is the rose less sweet in its crimson prime,
That its beauty cannot keep?
Yet tonight the moon is full,
And the heart is richer that chances pain
Than the heart in cotton wool.
Then what, my love, if your love is brief?
Tonight you are mine to kiss,
And better a century of grief
Than never an hour of bliss.

🌕 Moon-Related Autumn Celebration 🎑
The Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節), also known as the Moon Festival or Chinese Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival or Zhongqiu Festival, is a popular lunar harvest festival celebrated by Chinese and Vietnamese people on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar, close to the autumnal equinox. The Government of the People’s Republic of China listed the festival as an “intangible cultural heritage” in 2006, and it was made a Chinese public holiday in 2008. It is also a public holiday in Taiwan.
Mooncake (月餅) is a Chinese bakery product traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival (Zhongqiu). The festival is for lunar worship and moon watching, when mooncakes are regarded as an indispensable delicacy. Mooncakes are offered between friends or on family gatherings while celebrating the festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the four most important Chinese festivals.
