Silvery Moon is more fitting as a song for me, readerwriter. 'Sail along silvery moon, sail along lovers' lane, sail along silvery moon, to my love again!" There's another old verse about the moon I like "Oh, the moon shines east and the moon shines west, but I like the moonshine they make next door best!"
