Moonshine

The sun shines, we all agree The moon basks in its reflection Yet upon further inspection I've heard tell of a tune ~ ~ 'Shine on, Harvest Moon'

"Shine on Harvest Moon" - if I had a dollar for every time I have heard this one. Ha! I wonder if most on here know it is a song?

Keep the humor and the light side coming, Gershon. I need the relief from my over-serious mind sometime. Bill

The humor and the light side are keeping me sane, Bill. January in Chicago was meant for hibernating bears, not people. Smiles, gw

For some reason you got me thinking of Deliverance. Tom

Hi Gershon, I agree with the first two lines. Not to familiar with the song but I enjoyed your poem. Have a good evening. I hope your New Year is going well thus far- Alexis

Since you mentioned moonshine, I remember I was at Upstairs Lounge, a bar somewhere SW of Chicago in the 70's, had two shots of moonshine then passed out inside the men's room! How tragic was that? Bottoms up, G.W.!!...ab

Two shots of moonshine in Chicago? -- You're a lucky man, Anselmo. Today, it would be two shots from a handgun. Stayin' Alive ~ The Bee Gees

I haven't thought about that song for a long time. Well penned my friend. Stay frosty.
