Ellington Moon Jan 2021
I look up from this great quagmire
To see that one unbroken hue
Of lapis like the hottest fire
I look up from this great quagmire
Towards teal like stripes on a Cheshire
Expansive fragmentary blue
I look up from this great quagmire
To see that one unbroken hue
Inspired by "Fragmentary Blue" by Robert Frost.
Ellington Moon Jan 2021
Alice fell down the rabbit-hole
Tired of making daisy chains
There lurked a world so full of soul
Alice fell down the rabbit-hole
A knave was tried for tarts he stole
The Queen of Hearts likes to complain
Alice fell down the rabbit-hole
Tired of making daisy chains
Inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
Ellington Moon Jan 2021
Summer is past, winter comes soon
Leaves and fire, crackle-crackle
Were-wolves howl beneath the moon
Summer is past, winter comes soon
Music box plays a haunting tune
Can you hear the witches cackle?
Summer is past, winter comes soon
Leaves and fire, crackle-crackle
Ellington Moon Jan 2021
Marigolds painted bright citrine
With leaves light green as peridot
Irises like aquamarine
Marigolds painted bright citrine
Rose hues vary like tourmaline
Amethyst-colored indigo
Marigolds painted bright citrine
With leaves light green as peridot
Ellington Moon Jan 2021
Red, or'nge, yellow, the sun's bright light
Violet night, blue sky, green leaves
Isn't the world a pretty sight?
Red, or'nge yellow, the sun's bright light
Silver moon against the dark night
Gold stars glow from the heavens' eaves
Red, or'nge yellow, the sun's bright light
Violet night, blue sky, green leaves
Ellington Moon Jan 2021
Notes falling like the winter snow
They sparkle like so many gems
Chasing each other to and fro
Notes falling like the winter snow
Promoting joy; inflicting woe
Wav'ring on wind like flower stems
Notes falling like the winter snow
They sparkle like so many gems
Ellington Moon Jan 2021
I have a little candle-light
It always burns bright, that small fire
Even on this very dark night
I have a little candle-light
I always keep it burning bright
To be like it's what I desire
I have a little candle-light
It always burns bright, that small fire
