Look how the pale queen of the silent night
Doth cause the ocean to attend upon her,
And he, as long as she is in his sight,
With her full tide is ready her to honor.
The Cherokee people call this month's full moon, Kawoni, which
means, "Flower Moon". This is traditionally a time when a new crop of wild edible
and medicinal plants can be found in the springtime woods and meadows.
April is also the month when frogs sing and dance their"Knee Deep Dance"
especially on clear nights when the pale queen sails across the evening sky.
But when the silver waggon of the moon
Is mounted up so high he cannot follow,
The sea calls home his crystal waves to moan,
And with low ebb doth manifest his sorrow.
So you that are the sovereign of my heart
Have all my joys attending on your will;
My joys low-ebbing when you do depart,
When you return their tide my heart doth fill.
So as you come and as you do depart
Joys ebb and flow within my tender heart.
