He and She

  1. As the moon sidles up
    Must she sidle up,
    As trips the scared moon


    Away must she trip:
    'His light had struck me blind
    Dared I stop'.
  2. She sings as the moon sings:
    'I am I, am I;
    The greater grows my light
    The further that I fly.'
    All creation shivers
    With that sweet cry.
