Moonlit Night by Mabel Forrest

| No TrackBacks
God had a fancy to make a gem
   Out of the world to-night,
And He used the moon as an emery wheel
   To polish it smooth and bright.

One facet was the crest of a hill,
   Another a shining stream;
And the dust of the wheel He filtered down
   To fashion a lover's dream.
