🌝Poetry Friday: Harvest Moon by Neal Levin🍂

The Harvest Moon is one of my favorite moons, yet somehow September 13th seems way too early for it. I'm just not finished with summer. But the lunar calendar being what it is, the Harvest Moon is always the first full moon that falls closest to the autumnal equinox (this year, that is on Monday,  September 23, 2019). This year is the first time since 2000 the Harvest Moon falls on Friday the 13th, and it won't happen again until 2049.

I always like to share a poem with my young readers for holidays and other specials days and this year, we will be reading Harvest Moon by Neal Levin. I hope you enjoy it, too.

It's Poetry Friday and this week's poetry roundup is hosted by Laura Purdie Salas at 


  1. Thanks for sharing this delightful, cheerful celebration of the Harvest Moon!

  2. I appreciate the cheerfulness of you poem Neal. Here is Vancouver Canada, the rain clouds have hidden the moon so we have missed it. I think we will pray for better weather and celebrate the October moon instead!
