Jewel of the Night

A canoe set sail
in the middle of the night
The boy saw a jewel
hanging from the sky
When wind pushed the boat
to the beat of waves
The jewel slid down
and rested at the edge
The boy thus tempted,
cast his net and hook
Little did he know
that the moon was a crook
Beckoning him with a smile,
The moon lit the sea
As fast as he could,
the boy sailed forth in his reverie
“Come up here,” he heard the moon say
But the horizon, forever
held him at bay
For a long time,  moon kept up the play
then it dipped into the sea
…and quietly slipped away
