Mrs Moon

Mrs Moon
sitting up in the sky
little old lady
rock-a-bye
with a ball of fading light
and silvery needles
knitting the night

Beautiful description of moon against the backdrop of traditional fables. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks.
So nicely written poem.
a nice change of pace- utterly lovely
Please help: did he write a poem with something like: 'Sometimes when I've had a few, I ask the world to step outside'? It sounds like it should be him. Can anyone identify it?
