Summer Moonlight

'Tis moonlight, summer moonlight

'Tis moonlight, summer moonlight, 
All soft and still and fair; 

The solemn hour of midnight 

Breathes sweet thoughts everywhere,

But most where trees are sending 
Their breezy boughs on high, 
Or stooping low are lending 
A shelter from the sky.

And there in those wild bowers 
A lovely form is laid; 
Green grass and dew-steeped flowers 
Wave gently round her head.

- Emily Bront—Ď

A beautiful poem to go along with a beautiful night's sky from the other evening, where the moon was seemingly huge and deep orange in colour.  It was late when I saw how mesmerising the moon looked and the only soul I seemed to share it with, as I fumbled around with my camera, was an owl sat in the tree in my garden, who hooted into the darkness.



  1. Oh goodness, this is beautiful - both the photos and the poem.
