Wolf Moon

 The first full moon of 2022 — the "Wolf Moon" — shines bright in the sky tonight.

Brightly the moon like a jewel is beaming,
White in the east, o'er a lone landscape gleaming,
Over the meadows and over the snow,
Glimmering, shimmering, silvery glow.

Low in the east, when the gloaming is ending,
Slowly this white winter moon is ascending,
Looming so large and appearing so nigh,
Satellite framed by a star-spangled sky.

High in the sky, with soft radiance teeming,
Nigh to the time when men, women, are dreaming,
Weird is her splendor on valley and hill,
Cold is her gleam upon river and rill.

Brightly the moon like a jewel is shining,
White in the west she is slowly declining,
Beautiful Moon ! Which beams gorgeous and grand
Over the homes of our own Native Land.

~Charles Nevers Holmes. 1926

Oh how lovely, I photographed the same moon in a pink sky! (Didn't know it was called a wolf moon - do you know why?

Such a beautiful photo of the moon. I miss going out late at night to take photos of the moon. Maybe when the temps warm up a bit. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

Such a great picture. It was overcast here so I didn't actually see the full moon.
