"Voyage of the Moon"

The moon is like a boat, my love
Of lemon peel afloat, my love
And with a sail of gauze, my love
She seems to slightly pause
Upon her silent way
While on her starry way

I see her pearly decks, my love
Set in with diamond specks, my love
I see her pearly mast, my love
Far from her seashell past
And softly does she sway
While on her starry way

Of silk they have been spun, my love
Her ropes that limply run, my love
Down to her carved prow, my love
Down to her mermaid prow
And gently does she sway
While on her starry way

She seems to linger long, my love
As if spelled by a song, my love
But know she tarries not, my love
Her journey unforgot
She makes her starry way
She makes her starry way

All in the sea of sky, my love
The moonships sail and fly, my love
And many are their kind, my love
Though all need but one wind
To make their starry ways
To make their starry ways

And there will come a time, my love
Oh, may it be in mine, my love
When men will proudly rise, my love
And board to sail the skies
Moonships from all the spheres
Moonships from all the spheres

The men be bathed in light, my love
The women clothed in white, my love
All in that wonderous fleet, my love
As each the other meets
Will smile and softly sing
Will smile and softly sing

And on some distant sand, my love
The ships will gently land, my love
Fair folk will meet them there, my love
With flowing golden hair
And great will be their joy
And great will be their joy

The moon is like a boat, my love
Of lemon peel afloat, my love
And with a sail of gauze, my love
She seems to slightly pause
