The Moon Out Of Reach



Nan Davenant's problem is one that many a girl has faced--her own happiness or her father's bond.

EMPTY HANDS -- Away in the sky, high over our heads, With the width of a world between, The far Moon sails like a shining ship, Which the Dreamer's eyes have seen. And empty hands are outstretched, in vain, While aching eyes beseech, And hearts may break that cry for the Moon, The silver Moon out of reach! But sometimes God on His great white Throne, Looks down from the Heaven above, And lays in the hands that are empty, The tremulous Star of Love.--Margaret Pedler

NOTE: Musical setting by Adrian Butt
