Full Moon

Sterling, Moonstone

Slowly, silently, now the moon 
Walks the night in her silver shoon; 
This way, and that, she peers, and sees 
Silver fruit upon silver trees; 
One by one the casements catch 
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch; 
Couched in his kennel, like a log, 
With paws of silver sleeps the dog; 
From their shadowy coat the white breasts peep 
Of doves in a silver-feathered sleep; 
A harvest mouse goes scampering by, 
With silver claws, and silver eye; 
And moveless fish in the water gleam, 
By silver reeds in a silver stream.

- Walter de la Mare

  1. Beautiful moon last night, very clear.
    Also, beautiful ring that came in the mail for me. The yellow radiates happiness right from my hand. A needed a little punch this morning and the ring does not disappoint, it just beams happiness :)
    Thank you :)
