Extravagant Moon Poem
John I. Blair
I look there in the east
And see a brilliant glowing disk
Riding the horizon.
The mighty mountains of the moon
Make patterns on its face,
Lighting my imagination.
Is the moon a pagan beast?
A symbol of Selene?
A cast-off portion of the Earth?
On nights like this
I could consider all
As equally evocative.
Why take that risk?
