Rat and Mole In A Boat On A Moonlit Night

June 7, 2021 at 10:32 pm (Children's Story, Entertainment, Poetry) (, , )

It was a night of a crescent moon
Only sound on the lake was cry of a loon
Mole rowed the boat through reeds and water lilies
Rat smoked a pipe like Grandma of the Hillbillies

A falling star fell in the sky behind the pair
Undoubtedly many wishes were made then and there
Rat had a small lamp attached to his pole
Lighting the way for the boat rowed by Mole

On a nearby lily sat a small frog
As quiet he was as a bump on a log
Behind the boat some distance away
A swan swam as tranquility lay

It was a magical mystical moonlit night
The water was calm and the stars were bright
Friendship was in the air
The boat’s true guiding light.
