… 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.
