The Whole Of The Moon

Today on my way home, this completely majestic song on the radio and the fantastic big ball lighting the dark blue sky.

 

Unicorns and cannonballs
Palaces and piers
Trumpets, towers and tenements
Wide oceans full of tears
Flag, rags, ferry boats
Scimitars and scarves
Every precious dream and vision
Underneath the stars

Yes, you climbed on the ladder
With the wind in your sails
You came like a comet
Blazing your trail
Too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
