THE FULL MOON OVER BOURNEMOUTH (UK)
One night last week
Sleep would not come with ease.
So I arose from my bed
And pulled back the curtains to take a peep.
There in all it's glory,
Was a magnificent full moon.
I stood there for ages
Humming a favourite tune.
I gazed at this awesome sight,
Thoughts and problems went through my mind.
Suddenly I was relaxed and calm,
A few answers I did find.
As I continued to gaze,
My thoughts went on to other things.
Taking the grandchildren to the park
Me going down the slide,
Kids on the swings.
I must have stood there
For quite some time.
Lost in a world of my own,
Suddenly I heard the church clock chime.
I bade farewell to this wonderful full moon,
Back to bed I did go.
Fell fitfully sound asleep,
After my midnight "Show".
