Spring Moon Rising ...

"I wished on the moon
For something I never knew
Wished on the moon
For more than I ever knew
A sweeter rose, a softer sky
On April days that would not dance by ...
It all came true
I wished on the moon for you."
                                   ~ "I Wished On The Moon"
                                           ~ composed by Ralph Raigner, lyrics by Dorothy Parker
                                                                  ~ 1935
                                            ~ Recorded by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald & other stars

The full moon rises in splendor over Cedar Creek Parkway,
Allentown, Pennsylvania, the evening of April 4, 2015. Early that morning
there was a total lunar eclipse, often called a Blood Moon.
