Moonlight on the Countryside
beauty, moon, nature, night,
From deep beyond the canyon rim,
Appearing at first night;
The moon appears upon a whim
And relays its borrowed light.

A bleeding heart sent me to bed
Tormented hot, by a lover's deception;
And in the folds of my blanket, cold as wet,

that are on the lawn
laughing and signing
as the waters are turbulent
