Moon Magic

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

William Butler Yeats

Floating in a sea of silver light,
The wood lies dreaming
Of the sweet miracle that late
Set the frogs drumming;
Of how the brook, but yesterday a lake,
Is now a thin
Trickle of sleepy song, more like
A ribbon than
The torrent that it was; of how,
Each one in turn,
Flowers have bloomed and gone; the haw;
The red-bud, torn
From some bright evening sky. One tall
Old linden-tree
Is blooming now; the night-winds tell
The moths to try
Her honey; like a luminous cloud,
A gauzy freight,
They cling there, and the murmuring tree is clad
With spirit fruit.
