Moonwort? How funny - wort means plant or herb. Heehee, giggled the 7 year old witch as she went about finding a poem to match the mood of hearing the word "moonwort."
The child's wonder
At the old moon
Comes back nightly.
She points her finger
To the far silent yellow thing
Shining through the branches
Filtering on the leaves a golden sand,
Crying with her little tongue, "See the moon!"
And in her bed fading to sleep
With babblings of the moon on her little mouth.
For some reason I was unable to use the browse feature on blogger to upload my lunaria picture. Well, it gives me a bit of practice blogging the picture from Flickr. I'm not sure what will happen if you click on the image - it may take you to my Flickr page. Plus, I decided to try the the new format for posting - I tried it once before and hated it, but that was when Mercury was retrograde. The jury's still out on it....ah, the learning curve!
