The Fox and The Moon, The Fox and the Moon
A Fox in a Moon Night by PirosmaniThe Fox and The Moon, The Fox and the Moon

The moonThe Fox and The Moon, The Fox and the Moon that came to the meadow,
was as moon as a moon can be,
and the moon was old, and the moon was cold,
cold and old as a moon can be.

The fox that came to the meadow,
was as fox as a fox can be,
and the fox was old, and the fox was cold,
cold and old as a fox can be.

The moon looked down at the meadow,
“If a fox I could only be.
It could do no harm, just once to be warm.
To scamper wild and free.”

The fox looked up at the heavens,
“If the moon I could only be.
Just to glide away, till the break of day,
no hounds a chasing me.”

They lingered there in the meadow,
till the sun ran both from sight,
but the moon was a fox, and a fox was the moon,
on a long lost meadow night.
