The hare and the moon

Why don’t you love me?

Asked the hare of the moon

As she stared with her face cold and white


My love to you would be no boon

For I’m only reflected light


Why don’t you love me?

Cried the hare to the moon

As she sat with the stars in the sky


I would fall if I did swoon

The moon shone back from on nigh


Why don’t you love me?

Wept the hare to the moon

As the darkness bled into the day


To other things your love attune

I cannot by your side stay


Why don’t you love me?

Asked the hare of the moon

As she ran desperate to follow the night


My love would lead only to your ruin

For I’m naught but reflected light


I’m naught but reflected light
