The moon is so far away these days
her face cold, distant, serene.
Where is my childhood companion?
The wild, beautiful giantess
whose light was full of electric, mysterious songs
her dance punctuated by impenetrable silence.
Ageless, eternal, untouchable.
She slips from me like quicksilver;
leaves me in earthbound mourning.
My clumsy ears and feet
strain to follow her tune.
