New Moon

New Moon What, a new moon? We're getting a new moon? You say it will be arriving soon? Will it be as shiny and bright As the other with its glistening light? Oh, how positively grand The lads and lassies will strike up the band And all the neighbors will be standing by To watch it approaching in the sky. Of course, the sky will be dark for a while For the moon must travel many a mile But soon we'll see its distant beams Just as we imagined in our dreams. New Moon was known in ancient tradition Studied by wise men of erudition But being unwise, all I want to know Is where oh where do the old moons go? Molly Moore
