The moonlight falls upon my window sill, But I have neither the desire nor will to cross the room and gaze into the light! This little patch of silver, is my own, The full-orbed moon is fat and overgrown Its face would mock the romance of the night. So I will keep my little silver sill. And let those face the full-orbed moon who will!
