Seeing the Moonlight

(A Cornfield by Moonlight with the Evening Star by
Samuel Palmer, 1805-1881, English painter and printmaker)

Among poets, the moon is a topic almost as popular as love.


Seeing the moonlight
spilling down
through these trees,
my heart fills to the brim
with autumn.

~ Ono No Komachi (825?-890?), Japanese poet
