A hare, a toad, a donkey, a winking
eye, a bow, a ship,
a queen bee, a chip of
flint, a cheese, a
wood, a crab, a girl with a book. The
moon is all this and more. Eclipsed it drips blood, eclipsing, it
is a decapitating
sickle, or a serpent swallowing the
sun like an egg. It has been visited many times, by ladder, by boat, by tree, by bird. It's light spawns
the blind poet drunk with inspiration and makes
the lunatic howl. It
is the reaper which mows down man and beast like hay. She beats time with the
tide and the rising of sap,
confounding all with the steps of her dance.
Apparently she likes croissants
For safety reasons this site should be taken in small doses with an occasional
pinch of salt.
The object of this page is to collect information about
the moon. Some parts of this site may have little or nothing to do with the
moon. Please bear with me. I tend to ramble, but I do have a lot to say, and
normally it only gets said late at night after too many pints, so if it seems
confused, that's because it is.
If you know anything about the moon, or
if you know how Michael Stipe seems to know all this stuff already, or if your
web page is relevant to any of this, or if you've found dead links please E-Mail me.
Recently I have
discovered several of my pages reproduced elsewhere on the web. I don't mind
this (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all :-) ), but if you
wish to use any of this material, please consult me first, and be sure to put in a
link back to this site.
