From time to time while looking at the moon…
a cloud will come to give you rest. (Chinese Haiku)
My barn having burned to the ground,
I can now see the moon.
Reach for the Moon…if you miss…you’ll still be among the stars.
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls
Moonlight is sculpture
There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dis-passionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery
Every one is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody
That orbed maiden, with white fire laden,
Whom mortals call the moon. P B Shelly
” I suppose there were moonless nights and dark ones with but a silver shaving and pale stars in the sky, but I remember them all as flooded with the rich indolence of a full moon.” Willa Sibert Cather
The young moon has fed
Her exhausted horn
With the sunset’s fire. P B Shelly
When the moon is not full, the stars shine more brightly
Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.
The moon is at her full, and riding high, Floods the calm fields with light. The airs that hover in the summer sky Are all asleep to-night
“Tell me what you feel in your room when the full moon is shining in upon you and your lamp is dying out, and I will tell you how old you are, and I shall know if you are happy.” Henri Frederic Amiel
” Never say [to younger people] “that was before your time,” because the last full moon was before their time!” Bill Cosby
