Moon of Yellow Gold

Updated on April 24, 2017


That, oh so sweet smell of pines,

Fills up the evening's air just fine.

Standing on my front porch steps,

So gives me such a peace of mind.


Big yellow moon, sitting there on high,

You're always such a special sight.

As not a single cloud to be seen,

There in the dead of the night.


Frogs and crickets all do chime in,

playing their parts in a symphony,

Mosquitos buzzing about my head,

nightbirds join in this rhapsody.


A quiet hush comes over the scene,

as brown deer, all to scurry on by.

A big racoon so seems to swoon,

His silhouette of gold in the sky.

      When the moon's out, nature certainly takes on a different mood. I saw a full moon through interlaced branches the other night and it was partly spooky, partly soothing - strange!

      Lovely poem, whonu.
