Long Night Moon
Dawn’s winter sunlight 

Filters through the gloom 

And softly kisses everything 

The loitering ground mist rises 

Above the cold night’s 

Bed of overlaying ferns 

As the season’s solstice 

Stealthily tiptoes away 

From the long night moon *

* The Long Night Moon gets its name because the full moon in December occurs near the solstice, which has the longest night of the year.
