Romance of the Harvest Moon

Sid Laptop 019

The harvest moon like a yellow orb

playing with night clouds

for shadow and light

as winds whipped about

somewhere in my memories

I saw your face in the sky

a moon so mysterious

full of promise

full of sweet hellos

from the starry night skies

your face reflected up above

while the moon shone brightly

I think I saw the shadow of your smile

just beyond the harvest moon

making me so dreamy

with memories of long ago summer times

of when we’d wander

hand in hand just you and I

hoping that the summer

would never fade away

like the golden harvest moon

in the dark night sky

you’ll become a memory too

as the days turn to autumn

bringing me pictures from the past

so dear to my heart

always reflected brightly

from harvest moon to harvest moon

as much as I try

there are so many memories

that will never die

for just one more glance

one more moment

to remember when love was new
