The best songs invoke the moon:
Moonlight Sonata. Clair de Lune.
The best poems? Ode to a Nightingale.
The Raven. A bird in the dark cannot fail.
See where the Skylark flies?
The best poems hide birds in their skies.
In the prison, the guilty has nothing to say.
“Prison is everything,” I heard a prosecutor say.
Around my moon the mist is singing
To memory, and memory, to the fleeing world,
Brings the only thing worth bringing:
Memory. Before the world runs away.
“Memory is everything,” I heard a songwriter say.
