Take a Word Challenge: "Moon"




For my "Moon"-themed digital collage, I was inspired by this poem by Carl Sandburg:

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.
