Long Life to the Moon

Irish Poem/  music by Gordon Bok


A short, anonymous poem that Kate Barnes sent me.  (Plenty of room for short songs in the world.)


Gordon & Carol – vocals


Ogh, long life to the moon for a

      fine noble creature

Who serves us for lamplight each night

      in the dark

While the sun only shines in the day,

      which by nature

Needs no light at all as yez all may




Long Life to the Moon is recorded on the album Dear To Our Island and is in the songbook One to Sing, One to Haul
