Wolf moon, Snow moon, Worm and Pink.
And can you tell me again
the names of the moon at its full,
now I mean this December?
Pink, Flower, Strawberry and Buck
and when is the Sturgeon, Harvest
and Hunter? August, September
and October, when fields have been reaped
and harvest has is over.
November, the Beaver
before swamps freeze land and water,
frosty and cold before December
when long nights set in,
the moon before Yule
and always an extra moon
the blue moon,
the fourth moon.
My moon is red-grained and Green Corn.
Yours is the Worm moon when ice is melting
and the cawing of crows calls spring to its table
when time is ripe for tapping the maple.
Now is December the cold moon, the blue
but light will soon lengthen,
when the Wolf moon is howling
