LP (6th March 1954 / London, England)

The Night The Moon Got Stolen

In the night the moon got stolen
lunatics shook their fists at empty heavens,
cats stared at holes in the dark night
and seas turned into lakes, tides refused,

And songwriters hit the wrong keys
while lovers went home for an early night,
words were not whispered in ears nor
arms thrown across shoulders in first joy.

Have no fear for this lost face in the sky,
the lady that shimmers over standing water.
Aurora will bring the slow return of dawn,
Libertas will free this stolen moonlight.

I really like this one. A different take on what happens during a new moon. Well done.
Have no fear for this lost face in the sky, the lady that shimmers over standing water. Aurora will bring the slow return of dawn, Libertas will free this stolen moonlight. hope there will be dawn and naturally dusk again......... in the night the moon will come and appear for you alone......... very nice fantasy and imagination...... thank you. tony
What a great idea! Another good one ;)
How could the songwriters carry on without the moon and lovers in the lane thanks for your poem that makes us appreciate it more...regards86837
A moonless night is a dreary night! Poets and lovers all dread such a night! Lying awake they long for an early dawn..... and Aurora is about to begin her march! Let us hope that before long, the next night be blessed by the new moon appearing in all her splendour! Beautiful poem ofd hope!
