We make a "V" the moon and me
and the moonlight on the sea.
The angle of incidence carries the eye
down a moonbeam valley
and then to the sky.
When she first appears,
our two careers are gently inclined
to horizon love,
But when she's high
and her glow nearby,
we're a steeple inverted
with a moonstone above.
