Blue Moon With a Dream of My Own


We stood on the front porch of ‘The Cottage for Two,’ and looked for the  blue moon imagining others from around the world who wanted to see the scientific wonder of two full moons in one month.  That was not what drove me to SEE the blue moon, but the song Frank Sinatra sang that we danced to as teenagers, cheek to cheek, no less. Alas nothing blue, not even a clear photograph with  my I- phone, but I bet I was not the only one who recalled these lyrics and hummed a nostalgic tune. Click on the link below, it is guaranteed to make you smile and sway as in days of old.

“Blue Moon”

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked to the moon it turned to gold

Blue moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

  1. A great old standard! I remember back when I first found out a blue moon wasn’t blue, it made me blue. Yet, I always enjoy a lovely full moon!
