So High

d’Verse Poets Pub -Oldies but Goodies, No Matter the Age
Lillian is hosting and has asked us to choose a popular song from our early years as the inspiration for a poem.

1951 – How High the Moon by Les Paul and Mary Ford

So High
How high the moon seems on
A clear winter night
So high
Even the stars can’t touch it
Shining down on this simple planet
Lighting the way for travelers
And lovers

  1. Love this….especially that you added the lovers at the end! Will have to google the audio of this song…it’s one I don’t remember. Glad you enjoyed and posted to the prompt!


  2. I love this challenge! Amazing how many songs are stored in the recesses of our minds and rise to the surface when the title is mentioned.
