Moon Magic

Tonight, at moonrise
Stay awake with me
By a silent lake
Watching the quivering reflections
Of a thousand moons
And I, with ribbons of liquid light
Will weave for you a land of dreams
You will see through silvery light
A million seagulls put to flight.
And walk upon a burnished sea
Polished, gleaning, pearly free.
And the tender mist will touch you
And the gentle breeze caress you
Then we will track a falling star
And read its message from afar
Drowsily as you fall asleep,
Into a star lit slumber
Soft and deep,
Let us watch the lonely wake.
The fitful flitting fire flies keep
Close your eyes …
And listen to the wistful wind
Borne on wings through the silent night.
Close your eyes
Moondrops will fall upon your face
And the fragrance of the night
Will wrap about you soft and white
Sleep, my beloved, sleep.
