Can you Tell me the Full Moon Names? by Geraldine Green

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

is needed.

 

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
