Zeppelin Nights
By D. H. Lawrence
From “War Films”

NOW, will you play all night!
        Come in, my mother says.
Look in the sky, at the bright
        Moon all ablaze!
Look at the shaking, white        5
        Searchlight rays!
Tonight they’re coming!
        It’s a full moon!
When you hear them humming
        Very soon,        10
You’ll stop that blooming
[Children sing on unheeding:]
        Sally go round the sun!
        Sally go round the moon!        15
        Sally go round the chimney-pots
                On Sunday afternoon!
