Discussion with Selene

We watched the almost full moon come up
that chill pre-autumn night

It rose quite quickly
offhanded remark
the field was bright
the way home dark

I want to stay here forever
No cares, except for a sweater
We really do have it good here
and this night's made it better

I could too, but not right now
too much upon my plate
work to do, lines to right
and besides it's getting late

With one more smoke we were gone
leaving that once holy ground
Shed tears still stained your face
Light was pale; homeward bound

That pre-autumn chilly night
wish we'd walked 'til the sun came up
