With and Without

It’s not exactly about the Moon but I’ve stored my first-ever attempt at writing a poem here. Click on the above link if you find that sort of thing interesting.

My favorite poet is Wendell Berry. This poem is from his collection “Farming: A Hand Book”. It’s not about astronomy or sketching but I’ll bet a lot of people who love astronomy will recognize the feeling it it evokes.
