Courting the Moon

22 Feb

South star, courting the crescent moon,

Stark and stately, shines above the north wind.

Pine’s dancing branches float off the evergreens;

Shedding their fine pointed falling leaves.

 

The swaying trees, in the light of love,

drop their seeds, sending pine cones empty;

Rolling silently in the sliver of night,

To become spring’s witness

 

When full moon is bright.

    ‘Pine’s dancing branches float off the evergreens;’ ~ love the expression. ‘float off’ – one of the exercises for beginners piano students, when we work at their wrists…..so I see your expression very whimsically….nice nature adventure with bright moon…who knows what happens after…. 🙂 ~ Thanks for kind words at my blog, ZQ
