The Last Harvest Moon

harvest moon

The harvest moon rose yellow up high,

the wind sounded like a sigh.

Somewhere in my memories –

I saw your face in the sky


Harvest moon so mysterious,

full of promise,

full of sweet hellos,

as the stars go twinkling by.


Your face reflected in the sky.

while the moon shone brightly,

I think I saw the shadow of your smile –

just beyond the harvest moon.


Harvest moon bringing dreams,

with memories of long ago summer times,

of when we’d wander,

hand in hand just you and I.


Harvest moon like a lantern,

in the dark night sky,

soon it’ll be but a memory,

as the days turn to autumn.


Harvest moon so glad,

you bring me memories,

so dear to my heart even though we’re apart –

these will never fade away.


Harvest moon up so very high,

as much as I try,

there are so many memories of love –

that will never die.


So I thank you harvest moon,

for just one more glance,

one more fleeting summer moment –

remembering when love was new.

    Hi! I loved your poem!
    Over at my blog Between the Lines, we feature work that matches the month’s theme from writers and artists. September’s theme is ‘Harvest Moon’ and I was wondering if you’d allow me to reblog this.

    Reblogged this on Between the Lines and commented:
    The second feature of the day!

    This poem is by Rasma R. Another one with some really awesome imagery.
