Something About The Moon Last Night...

Something About The Moon Last Night...

They say it's just ice crystals,
High in the atmosphere,
Twenty two degree refraction,
Across forty six degrees of sky,
But that's just science for you.

They say it means weather on the way,
However many stars in the ring are the number of days,
Frost and fraught with hazardous white,
A portent of frozen night,
But that's just folklore for you.

I say it's rare and wondrous,
The moon a brilliant pebble dropped,
The sky a frosted grey pond of night,
And wonder of folklore and science,
But that's just me for you.

All I know for sure is it covered a quarter of the sky that night.
