A/N: This is my first true villanelle! Huzzah!

August Moon

O sweet august moon's embrace
From your perch between the mountains fly
Catch me fore I fall from grace

He who vanished without a trace
Does he sleep now in the sky?
O sweet august moon's embrace

Maiden of sad eyes and pallid face
Catching children in the rye
Catch me fore I fall from grace

The generations lost in space
They left me stranded here to die
O sweet august moon's embrace

Take me from this lonely place
I need not time to say goodbye
O sweet august moon's embrace
Catch me fore I fall from grace
