The Long-moon Night.....

It will not last forever
The dark and bitter hour
The cold and muddy river
With bank bereft of flower
The cruel disappointment
That pierces to the core
Will soon be tossed into its tide
And gone forevermore

It will not last forever
The chill upon the grass
Though now with tears we shiver
And yearn for this to pass
Soon comes the fairer morning
Where warmer breezes sigh
When this dark night will simply be
A glimmer in our eye

It will not last forever
The darkness or the light
Ties closely knit will sever
The green field turns to white
It will not last forever
The long-moon night will die
Leaving but a glimmer
Of wisdom in our eye
