The moon

Taken last night but it refused to upload. Not quite full but we so rarely have a cloudless sky, I took the chance while I could.

As I took it, a nursery rhyme went through my mind:

The man in the moon came down too soon
And asked the way to Norwich
He went by the south and burnt his mouth
Eating cold pease porridge.

Why I thought of that I don't know. The only other moon rhyme I know is:

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

There must be other, but I can't think of them at the moment. Does anyone know any?


  1. I think it's a wonderful shot, and the image has more depth of character because it isn't a full moon.

  2. I love the moon with a blue sky!

  3. Beautiful photo! Of course I know
    "au clair de la lune"! but no poetry in my mind at this moment!


Forethoughts, afterthoughts, any thoughts. Tell me.
