Moon Moon, Mother Moon
The Hunter’s Moon: The month or moon following the ”harvest moon”
Hunting does not begin until after harvest.
~Brewer’s “Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.”
It is the very error of the moon ;
She comes more nearer earth than she was wont,
And makes men mad.
– Shakespeare, “Othello,” V, ii.
Near full moon, a misty sunrise
Bodes fair weather and cloudless skies.
– Collected in R. Inwards, “Weather Lore”
Earth, let not thy envious shade
Dare itself to interpose ;
Cynthia’s shining orb was made
Heaven to clear when day did close :
Bless us then with wished sight,
Goddess excellently bright.
– Ben Jonson, “Hymn to Diana.”
