The Other Sun

"...a dull, contracted circle yielding light so feebly spread, that not a shadow falls, chequering the ground--from rock, plant, tree or tower..."

This is from William Wordsworth's "A Night-Piece," describing, as you may have guessed, the moon. The moon melts inhibitions in cool heat and dissipates sickness in wonderful night world. The soul expresses its desire during the moonrise and the moonset and executes it under the moonshine. The new moon contemplates. The full moon acts.
