Fly me to the Moon

Fly me to the moon
in a songswept cocoon
with a silvery spoon
dipped in cotton

the moth will arise
with a song in his eyes
and fireflies
will put on the kettle

a cloud for my pillow
the sun warms the willow
the stream cools my mellow
and follow

the sycamore tree
made a home just for me
when I busted my knee
in the meadow

but nearer than still
I’ve had flow of my fill
and I wish for to borrow

Fly me to the moon
past the doom and the gloom
on a silvery spoon
dipped in cotton

    This is to me, in my lack of knowledge about poetry, a real poem. The rhyme is excellent.

  • Aw thx Byron, I don’t know anything myself. I just sit here with my iPhone, open the writing box and start typing, but I’m so glad you liked it :)
