Two Verses from Thomas Hardy - To the Moon

'Have you much wondered, Moon,
On your rounds,
Self wrapt, beyond Earth's bounds?'
'Yea, I have wondered, often wondered
At the sounds
Reaching me of the human tune
On my rounds'
-----
'What do you think of it Moon,
As you go?'
Is life much, or no?'
'O, I think of it, often think of it
As a show
God ought surely to shut up soon,
As I go'.
Taken from Geoffrey Grigson - The Cherry Tree
