Beneath the moon that slides above
the silver- scattered land,
who understands the hand?
The glove -- but not the wedding band.

Beyond the quay on frosted nights,
the sky embossed with stars
spreads over seas to cover scars
like clouds concealing Mars.

The wafted wings of nightingales
which whisper in the dark
suffuse somehow in timbre's bark --
the love song of the lark.

She said to bring a jug of wine.
She said to bring a spoon.
She said to bring a red raccoon.
She said to bring the moon.

Very beautiful ! I loved it ! It reminded me of the imagery and genius turn of phrase of the British Romantic era poets. Was it Shelley, who wrote something like: "The sunlight clasps the Earth/The moonbeams kiss the sea/What are all these kissings worth if thou kiss not me?" I think if Shelley had read "she said", he would have said, "Well done!"
