This work has reached the exceptional level
a discreet friend

Man in the Moon

by mfowler

As child I whispered to the moon
and he that heard would listen close
to secrets hard and out of tune,
to feelings sad and stories gross.
Tonight I thank that prudent friend,
discreet and faithful to the end,
for being there in darkest night,
a constant source of guiding light.
