The Moon and Me
We are happy, the bright- faced moon and me,
Gazing past the fluffy clouds to an ocean blue.
The sailboats rocking themselves dream the open sea.....
If you were told to go to sleep what would you do?
My calico cat purrs at the foot of my bed.
Mother hears me scribbling and calls up the stairs, "Remember what I said!"
She promised we'd ride to the white sandy beach
and pack in our basket juicy plums, cherries, and peaches for each.
