may full [flower] moon

"her antiquity in preceding and surviving succeeding tellurian generations: her nocturnal predominance: 
her satellitic dependence: her luminary reflection: her constancy under all her phases, rising and setting 
by her appointed times, waxing and waning: the forced invariability of her aspect: her indeterminate response 
to inaffirmative interrogation: her potency over effluent and refluent waters: her power to enamour, to mortify, 
to invest with beauty, to render insane, to incite to and aid delinquency: the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: 
the terribility of her isolated dominant resplendent propinquity: her omens of tempest and of calm:
the stimulation of her light, her motion and her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas,
her silence: her splendour, when visible: her attraction, when invisible."

James Joyce, Ulysses

behind the bamboo fence she rose again
with splendid glory
the flower moon of may
