climbers rescued

the moon is big
and round
tonight

something calls me
to her

I’ve never seen her
come so close
so near

~

if I grasp the rope
with both my feet
wrap one arm around it

perhaps
I can reach up
to caress her
with the other

~

luna
you seem so pale
you are soft and golden

luna
have you come so close
for me
this time

~

the moon is big
and round
tonight

I’ve been climbing
to get closer

watching her
it’s like she smiles
for me

she waits

~

oh luna
now you’ve gone
so far away
though I have not yet
reached you

luna
was I too slow
were you
dismayed

~

I took too long

I didn’t try
quite hard enough

I took the wrong way
to try to reach her

she is gone

she is gone
beyond my reach
and I
am
lost

alone
on this wretched hill

Mount
Tibrogargan
