Under the Light of the Midnight Moon
Under the light
of the Midnight Moon,
A Racoon asked a Loon,
“Have you seen my spoon?”
And the Loon said, “No.”
This is just a little short and bitter-sweet vignette of a possible occurrence in Nature; but…
… it does raise more questions than it has answers for:
what is a Loon?
are different species able to communicate clearly and concisely with each other? – perhaps through an empathetical voice (as we never seem to hear them) and, is English a ‘default’ language in other countries as well as this one? – maybe they make use of Esperanto.
Should I have crowbarred the word’ Macaroon’ into the above poem? – it is a fine word, and makes very few appearances in modern literature.
And, finally, would a Racoon have the need of a spoon? – Nature seems to provide all that Naturists need… sorry, I think that I have used the wrong word there, Naturalists? No, just ‘Nature’ again is what I meant to say.
The loons (North America) or divers (United Kingdom / Ireland) are a group of aquatic birds found in many parts of North America and northern Eurasia. All living species of loons are members of the genus Gavia, family Gaviidae and order Gaviiformes.
