THE MOON IS SINKING - THE TEMPESTUOUS WEATHER, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: Jes' so
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Weather


The moon is sinking''"the tempestuous weather
Grows worse, the squalls disputing our advance;
And as the feet fall well and true together
In the last moonlight, see! the standards glance!

One hour, one moment, and that light forever.
Quite so.
Jes' so.
