I begin a chorus of Shine On Harvest Moon

My two guests prefer silence

I empty another glass,

stand, and begin to dance

in the moonlight

on the wall

As we turn,

the Blue Danube

guides us around the room

in 3/4 time

My gliding legs stagger

The waltz wanes

I bow to my partner,

seek solitude in my big soft chair

Sliding into sullen slumber

I bid goodnight

to Moon and Shadow

vowing to see them soon

in my dreams
