[go visit her, she’s amazing]


The thief, he sat
by the garden wall
in the shadow of the ivy and sage

The moon, she shown
over slated and thatched roofs
bathing all like a spotlighted stage

The thief, he thought
with his prize in his hands
that he’d taken his weight in gold

The moon, she knew
from her clear lofty perch
it was something that could never be sold

The thief, he sat
by the garden wall
in the shadows that made him safe

The moon, she saw
the guards at their posts
yawning and shuffling in place

The thief, he smiled
as he unwrapped his boon
and held it out in his hands

The moon, she sighed
as she saw his fair prize
knowing its true value so grand

The thief, he sat
by the garden wall
in the shadows that made him safe

The moon, she shown bright
and she pushed back the night
to bring even more light to this stage

The thief, he then saw
it did not glitter like gold
neither did it even shimmer

The moon, she knew
now he’d see it for true
his commitment would start to grow dimmer

The thief, he now saw
what he’d taken was all
that someone could use against sorrow

The moon, she smiled
as she watched him wrap up
his prize that he’d skillfully borrowed

The thief, up he climbed
o’er that same garden wall
to put this prize back in its place

The moon she slipped quietly
behind a nearby cloud
with a smile spread wide ‘cross her face
