The moon was so bright this morning I almost could have driven to work without headlights. Absolutely beautiful.

We've been reading some poetry about winter in class. The moon reminded me of one of the poems.




Silver

Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees;
One by one the casements catch
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch;
Couched in his kennel, like a log,
With paws of silver sleeps the dog;
From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep
Of doves in silver feathered sleep
A harvest mouse goes scampering by,
With silver claws, and silver eye;
And moveless fish in the water gleam,
By silver reeds in a silver stream.

Walter de la Mare

Actually, I haven't stopped taking pictures. I just don't post every one of them anymore. LOL!

You are right, though. If ever there was a creature of habit, I am. :/

It's been wonderfully bright and beautiful here, but I probably won't see it this morning. The clouds have rolled in.

I've glad I saw it yesterday and the day before. Clouds have rolled in now so I won't see it today. There's just something about a big bold moon.

Hahahahahahahaha! And another TODAY! :D

I love that song. I learned it in sixth grade and several of us girls used to sing it (in harmony) on the steps of the high school at lunch...a capella! We entertained people driving by. LOL!

Try Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and also "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes. My kids always enjoyed those, and they're loaded with figures of speech that are fairly easy for kids to recognize.

I DO teach the Frost poem (several, in fact), but I've never done the Noyes. I'll have to add that to the ever-growing list of material. Thanks!

"see her how she flies
golden sails across the skies
she's close enough to touch
but careful if you try
though she looks as warm as gold
the moon's a harsh mistress
the moon can be so cold

once the sun did shine
and lord it felt so fine
the moon a phantom arose
through the mountains and the pines
and then the darkness fell
the moon's a harsh mistress
learn to love her well"

Great picture. And I love De La Mare. He's too often forgotten in this busy world of ours. Thanks for the poem by him.

Thank you!

Would you believe I'd never read anything by him until about ten years ago. I'm glad I didn't miss his work altogether. :D
