Moon Poems


D.H. Lawrence wrote, “The new moon, in cool height above the blushes/brings a fresh fragrance of heaven to our senses.” Frost said, “I’ve tried the new moon tilted in the air”. Shelley claims, “The lampless air glows round her golden crown”. In other words, the moon is a pretty big deal in poetry.

During the Winter Quarter, Prof. Chris Green’s  ENG 219 Reading & Writing Poetry class produced the following video, which consists of a class poem addressed to the moon along with video shot by each student. Perhaps it’ll inspire your own poetic musings.
