Harvest moon

Oh, heavenly night

Silver star-spun light

Shimmers across the sea.

 

The moon lingers low

My heart is aglow

Oh, heavenly night.

 

The air crisp and cold

Chills of autumn nights unfold

Shimmers across the sea.

 

Shooting stars above

Fill my heart with love

Oh, heavenly night.

 

As my worries and fears take flight

Cascades of phosphorescent light

Shimmer across the sea.

 

Free my spirit soars

Harvest moon adored.

Oh, heavenly night

Shimmers across the sea.
