Moonlit Tropics

Moonlit tropics - Co-written with William Burkholder


Starry nights with loved ones shared
visions of boats on harbors sail
moonbeams streaked with tattered lace,
blows in wind's delicate soft grace.
Wrapped up in a blanket we hold,
all of nighttimes magic unfolds

Resting terns in harbor light
greeting grace that comes with night
Loons call rising on inland swale
Bidding come the weary sail
Flapping quietly in dusky breeze
The sunset dying behind the trees

White sand fantasies easily steam
in moonlight walks by silver streams
Hand in hand we make our way 
while nighttimes music makes us sway.

And you and I in the recompense
Walk the moonlit way
to commune with surf and solitude
finding serenities quay.
