Poetry Corner: Watching My Friend The Moon

By Richard Wallace

Night Moon over Rothesay Bay

Early evening moonlit Rothesay Bay

I love to watch the moon in the sky.

I watch as the clouds go drifting by.

When they hide the moon

the moon knows I’m here.

I wait for the clouds to go by.


The moon comes to see me every night.

Sometimes it’s round and very bright.

Its coat of gold shines down on the world,

a gift for all the world to see.

It is a gift from a special friend.


The face in the moon knows that I’m here.

It smiles down for everybody.

Sometimes I pretend it’s smiling just for me.

It loves to get my ‘good luck wish’ to the moon.

The moon, my friend in the sky.
