Looking East

Rolling ghostly clouds
seethes the gulf
moon is full
moon and full

Summer is here again
no one knows how it came
moon swollen and full

Honeycombs of light
peek through the clouds

I am obsessed 
with a lady to the east

The song is sung
when all are asleep
I dream her awake

Thoughts are singing
gulf is silent
I am looking west

Words of romance
come easier
when sung by the sea

No one knows
how she came 
either

She just did
maybe the moon
shines on her

In Georgia

Under the white moon
perhaps she
will read this

As I write this
my heart
flies from me

Summer night
your love is here

By the ocean side
by the islands

Summer night
tell her
by the full moon

her lover is here...
