by Amy Lowell
When there was a clear moon,
I sat down
To write a poem
But the dazzle of moonlight
In the ink
And I could only write
What I remembered.
Therefore, on the wrapping of my poem
I have inscribed your name.

Thank you for sharing that this book is available online, Tricia. The poem is beautiful, I agree. The moon always brings the magic, and now a love poem.ReplyDelete
