Full Moon Surprise #47

lyrics

The trees are turning leaves are thinning
That bright moon might be beginning
To see where we’ve all been hiding
All summer in our dwellings

And I wonder, does she wonder
At our anxieties and dismay
Does she wonder about our scarecrows,
gnomes, and garden displays

Does she wonder of our fires, liars
Trials and travails
Of our tendencies to race in circles
Chasing our own tails

Her gaze is always fixed on us
As she orbits and observes
It’s a tidal lock and our good luck
She used to wobble and swerve

She is a master of the patience
You see just one day for her
Is near a month of days for us
Dizzy ones on planet earth here

She’ll be up there locked and watching
Lighting up our winter nights
Through her twelve days for our one year
Helping us see through our frights
