A Touch of Moonlight

Wherever the moonlight touches
Meadow or oft tread dale

Little, grey rabbits and birds

Each morning tell the tale

Of how, during the long night

The land took on a softer shade,

And even the humble mushrooms  

Seemed to shine within the glade;

Silken lacework of each web 

Glistened with strands, dewy-pearled;

And a faint, cool, bluish mist

Around trees slowly swirled

Just before the warm sunshine

Chased the moonlight away.

So, if you listen quite carefully

You might hear those birds say

Praiseworthy things to rabbits  

About what happened over night,

Excited at what had resulted

From the softest touch of moonlight.
