Poem by Christopher Morley

Full Moon

The moon is but a silver watch
    To tell the time of night;
If you should wake, and wish to know
    The hour, don't strike a light.

Just draw the blind, and closely scan
    Her dial in the blue:
If it is round and bright, there is
    A deal more sleep for you.

She runs without an error,
    Not too slow nor too quick,
And better than alarum clocksЧ
    She doesn't have to tick!
