In the northern sky just above the horizon,
the full moon does climb.
She is there to light the darkness as she has
Delightful splendor, crystal tendrils
shine forth into the night.
He and she walk arm and arm together
beneath her graceful light.
Glorious in the heavens she watches
the lovers as they go.
Yet her beauty is overshadowed,
by the lover's radiant glow.
