You're shining on the stars below 
Reflecting on the mirror of the lake 
Your smiling eyes are here to say hello 
To all the world awake 

Your face, unnoticed but so real 
Over me watches through the night 
Your whole and halves do make me feel 
No sorrow, ever, and no fright 

I stand alone and howl softly 
A lonely fox among the wolves 
They laugh and think I must be crazy 
But one of them close to me moves 

She joins me in my longing howl 
I am so grateful she does! 
Together we can scare the owl 
Whose questions make no sense to us.
