Moonlight Near a Small Town


Meet me in a moonbeam

Autumn leaves by a small town

Shadows pointing east along unhurried ground

Long shadows, we too have been forgotten.


The anticipation of starlight

Your beauty magnifies the black and white

We share the night, the sky, the earth

Born alone, we now share rebirth.


Let's talk about love,

And what comes after.

First we cry,

And then comes laughter.
