Busy the moon is

usy the moon is
    fair to see
busy to play
    hide-and-go-seek with
at night among the clouds

even in my dreams
    my fairest dreams
replete with felicity
    i have not seen fairer

ah, that i could capture
    capture and kiss
those maiden-proud lips

but lo! presently
    she shape-shifts
into a haggard old man, listless:
    why, oh why?
