Poetry is Power: Music for the moon


The moon was full,

A bright fiery light,

Glowing in the sky,

The wolves howl at it,

The owls hoot,

A black cat meows.

Or maybe,

You see the flickering light,

Of a jack-o-lantern,

Smiling at the moon,

Then you hear a faint,

“Trick or Treat!”

In the distance

Or someone yelling,


This is all music,

Music to the moon.

Music for the moon.

Music of joy.

Of love.

Of happiness.

Music of laughter.

That makes the moon smile.

The big,



Fiery moon,


And all the animals around it too.

They sing the song the moon 

loves to hear.

You can sing it too.
