Our World Index Listening Page Rock-a-Bye Moonbeams

The moon steps lightly through the night

     Above our sleeping earth.

She sees the sunshine say goodbye

    And greets each day’s new birth.


She sends her moonlight on our homes.

    She lightly kisses trees.

Her silvery light teases the waves

    And lulls the restless seas.


She beams down on the desert sand,

    On fields and pastures green.

The sun’s strong rays can burn and scorch

    But her touch is velveteen.


Our city lights outshine the moon

    With their razzle-dazzle light -

But over quiet countryside

    The moon has lustre bright.


Gone are the reds, the golds and blues

    That enrich our earthly day,

Whilst stealthy shades of darkness

    Steal these boisterous hues away.


Our clock hands move, the sun returns;

    We welcome in the light -

But as our earth slowly revolves,

    The moon returns with night.
