Monthly poem - August 2018


The pen and ink moon the cow jumped over
The blue moon who saw me standing alone
The day moon white as the Cliffs of Dover
The new moon sharp as a fresh fish bone
The red moon dipped in a rose wine
The silver moon who had Keats under her thumb
The harvest moon making the cornfields shine
The gold moon turning verbose men dumb
The full moon hanging above our city
The dark side who weeps into the sea
The man in the moon who has no pity
The paper moon when you don't believe in me.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
