Curse you, mocking moon It's not as though you ever cared or dared to do a thing but sit upon your perch and watch and while away the night time with your guileless gormless grin Mocking moon Waning to the quick waxing full and waxing new and waxing ever fatter while the whole world boos and claps at these fools that you have trapped and at your hoax to coax the mad ones from their heads and lure lovers to their beds. And to sooth the swooning dreamers sinking in your lonely hue Mocking moon Curse you, mocking moon long ago I fell in love with you and the way you called the swelling seasalt tide and swelled my blood to teaming life and made the months and lit the crooked wayward path for burning souls with borrowed light. And the way you loved the night Curse you mocking moon we made a deal and I believed in you but oh your night it is so dark and cold and I can't see two feet in front of me nor tell wood from towering tree nor ditch from darkened road, mocking moon, light the way and see me home Curse you mocking moon where are you now that I need you hiding out behind some cloud and what am I to do but sit and wait and shake my fists at the dark vault of the sky and curse the day I was beguiled by the craters of your eyes. And when you show your face I'll do as wolves and loons and godforsaken creatures do and howl at you © Laura Hyland 2010

The Round Soul of the World You are round - perfectly so. And I am full of indentations, inconsistent. But who knows - maybe we too are spherical from a distance. And I will give you this: my will, my word, these hands. And I ask in return: a roof above my head, my keep, and love to warm my palms, that I might roll between them the round soul of the world. © Laura Hyland

Curse you, Mocking Moon Curse you mocking moon It's not as though you ever cared or dared to do a thing but sit upon your perch and watch and while away the night time with your guileless, gormless grin Waning to the quick. Waxing full and waxing new and waxing ever fatter, while the whole world boos and claps at these fools that you have trapped, and at your hoax to coax the mad ones from their heads, and lure lovers to their beds, and to sooth the swooning dreamers sinking in your lonely hue. Mocking moon Curse you mocking moon. Long ago I fell in love with you and the way you called the swelling seasalt tide, and swelled my blood to teeming life, and made the months, and lit the crooked wayward path for burning souls with borrowed light, and the way you loved the night. Curse you mocking moon we made a deal and I believed in you but oh, your night it is so dark and cold and I can't see two feet in front of me, nor tell wood from towering tree, nor ditch from darkened road, mocking moon, light the way and see me home. Curse you mocking moon Where are you now that I need you - hiding out behind some rotten cloud and what am I to do but shake my fists at the dark vault of the sky, and curse the day I was beguiled by the craters of your eyes, and when you show your face I'll do as wolves and loons and godforsaken creatures do and howl at you. © Laura Hyland 2010
