The Beckoning Moon
By Frances Shaw
I WENT to the hills for courage,
  But the hills have made me weak;
I went to the hills for high resolves
  And the wisest words to speak.
There were bonfires down in the valley,        5
  And a beckoning moon in a tree;
So I sped a flame-winged messenger
  To call you back to me.
