Moon-colors

The night-grass glitters from the full moon
and the shadow from the cherry tree
lies down, full length
tickling the rhubarbs by their feet.
At the other side of the lawn
the poppy shines red
and the cornflower blue
but it’s another kind of shade:
Moon-blue, moon-red.
Another world, enchanted,
where the moon paints the darkness
with moon-colors.
