by John Irvine (1903 - 1964)

Moon magic
Language: English 
A young moon comes with silver feet
And passing down the quiet street
Upon the roadway still and white
She spills her pools of silver light

Along the thatch among the trees
Spreading her silver tapestries
Till ev'ry wooded place is made

A fairyland of light and shade
And houses in the hamlet seem
Like castles in a land of dream
