Some stars accompany the winter moon
which illuminates the frozen fields.
Life is still sleeping but will wake up soon
oblivious of the power the moon wields.
Moonlight awakes a special mystery
when the crisp air seems to quiver
and you somehow smell forgotten history
whose old sagas make you shiver.
So man and animal like the protection
of house or stable in these winter days.
But winter moonlight offers introspection
magically reaching deep with rays.
