SHINE on, O moon of summer.
Shine to the leaves of grass, catalpa and oak,
All silver under your rain to-night.
 
An Italian boy is sending songs to you to-night from an accordion.
 
A Polish boy is out with his best girl; they marry next
    month; to-night they are throwing you kisses.
 
An old man next door is dreaming over a sheen that sits in a cherry tree in his back yard.
 
The clocks say I must go—I stay here sitting on the
    back porch drinking white thoughts you rain down.
 
         Shine on, O moon,
Shake out more and more silver changes.
