moon walking

the moon keeps a star
like a puppy on a lead
one night
close to hand
one night she lets him run

a crescent moon
a full-stretch star
in a saunter sky

they pass
beyond the edge
of where I can go

do they wander
the whole night long

will I see them
tomorrow night
a fuller orb
and a lead that’s not too close
for every pup
should have free rein sometimes
to roam

gibber moon
wax and wane
crescent to crescent
so full
then gone

little star
twinkle light
pup faithful
do not stray

for in her come and goings
she’d wonder where you are

a crescent moon
a little star
tonight
