Poem: The Moon and The Lady Moon

The Moon and The Lady Moon 

I saw the moon and the face of my sweetheart.

They were a couple of moons in sight.

I couldn’t define which one killing me soon,

the sky moon or the lady moon.

If I didn’t see her gently falling curl, 

and her rosy cheeks that make me swoon,

I would believe the moon was my lovely girl,

and my lovely girl was the moon.
