I am standing naked at ease
bathed, by the light of the full moon;
great brilliant orb of the heavens
waves of crystal clear cold light shedding
into cloudless clear blue sky.
Yeah, even the cripple would dance
on nights such as this
moon goddess a-sail in all her splendour
her sea a deep dark blue sky
studded and twinkling with stars
those the full light not whelming.
Noise of the city’s far off
muted at peace by night’s presence
all around me the moon bathes
cold brilliant warmth of moony cosset
Far and near a night flyer crosses
shadow silent reflecting the moon
one dog, another share howls
remembrance now of wilder hunting days
side by side with man in jungles here
The moon is a-sail tonight
bright and clear and sharp, full sail ahead-
the night softens the light
and calm’s settled on earth
The moon is full, the moon is full,
Oh, heaven on earth,-
the moon sails the night on full.
