The Harvest Moon

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It is the harvest moon!

And their aerial neighborhoods of nests deserted,

On the curtained window-panes of rooms where children sleep,

On country lanes

And harvest-fields,


Its mystic splendor rests!

Gone are the birds that were our summer guests;


When the last sheaves

  4. A hauntingly beautiful presentation of the harvest moon, dramatic and mysterious, but equally illuminating and playful; each mood a vital presence in the dark of night.

    It is evident that you diligently searched the blogosphere for the perfect images to illustrate this moon of many dimensions and degrees.

    Sweet dreams to you, too, my friend!

  12. As I was closing the drapes tonight, I looked up to see a ripe harvest moon caught in the branches of the neighbor's maple. I watched till it had untangled itself from leaf and limb and climbed into the sky. There is something undeniable in the turning of the earth and the endless rising of the moon.

    I stopped the longest over the photo of the harvest moon strolling down the country lane. Lovely, "lovely beyond any singing of it"...
