Moon Shadow

Chasing my moon shadow down the drive
Tonight, I never quite can catch it;
And that makes me laugh
For reasons I don’t clearly understand.

Perhaps it cheers me just to think
I’m still substantial,
Even in the moonlight
Where phantoms seem at hand.

Perhaps to see the Lady in the moon
Reminds me I’ve been loved
And found someone to love –
Two aspects of delight.

Either way I’m blessed
And I’m alive.
