Mary Hopkin - Voyage of the Moon

English

Voyage of the Moon

The moon is like a boat, my love
Of lemon peel afloat, my love
And with a sail of gauze, my love
She seems to slightly pause
Upon her silent way
All on her starry way
 
I see her pearly decks, my love
Set in with diamond specks, my love
I see her pearly mast, my love
Far from her seashell past
And softly does she sway
All on her starry way
 
Of silk they have been spun, my love
Her ropes that limply run, my love
Down to her carved prow, my love
Down to her mermaid prow
And gently does she sway
All on her starry way
 
She seems to linger long, my love
As if spelled by her song, my love
But know, she tarries not, my love
Her journey unforgot
She makes her starry way
She makes her starry way
 
All in the sea of sky, my love
The moonships sail and fly, my love
And many are their kind, my love
Tho' all need but one wind
To make their starry ways
To make their starry ways
 
And there will come a time, my love
O may it be in mine, my love
When men will proudly rise, my love
And board to sail the skies
Moonships from all the spheres
Moonships from all the spheres
 
The men be bathed in light, my love
The women clothed in white, my love
All in that wonderous fleet, my love
As each the other meets
Will smile and softly sing
Will smile and softly sing
 
And on some distant sand, my love
The ships will gently land, my love
Fair folk will meet them there, my love
With flowing golden hair
And great will be their joy
And great will be their joy
 
The moon is like a boat, my love
Of lemon peel afloat, my love
And with a sail of gauze, my love
She seems to slightly pause
