In 1998 I released a piano solo by the same title on my second album ” The Poet’s Dream”. I wrote the poem in 1992 and the song started it’s journey soon after. I wrote it over a year’s time and didn’t write the intro until the actual recording itself! Crazy! I have played this song for 20 plus years in concerts halls all over. Here is a link to the song: “The Jealousy of the Moon” I have no idea where the cover pic came from. Youtube is confused. LOL
Now the poem:
THE JEALOUSY OF THE MOON
The moon leaks down her amber glow
ruling the night she knows.
She sees the significance of the sun
and the power he has won.
In insane jealousy,
she changes the tides
causes women terrible pain
Without the sun,
she cannot shine at night
because she has no light of her own.
This makes her jealous.
Besides, most people are awake in the day
to see the sun in his brilliance
while most everyone sleeps when she comes out.
She is lonely and becomes jealous.
But cunning is the moon,
ruling the night.
She is unmatched in her influence.
Darkness her favor…
Jealousy her power…
Seasons befall her changes…
