Moonshadow is a strange song
“If I ever lose my hands, I won’t have to work no more.”
Is this searching for a bright spot in a tragic loss?
If I ever have to give up working, it will sadden me to my core.
I do not remember seeing a shadow created by the moon
Maybe the next late night, with a full or new moon will take me out the door,
just to look and see, are there shadows then?
or is it just Cat Stevens’ lore?
