The Moon Turns Over and Over—As a Song

Michael Leon occasionally puts to music my attempts at writing songlike things, as he’s done with this piece I wrote last fall (lyrics here). The simple (but perhaps overly busy) video portion must be blamed solely on me as I gathered (stole) images and sequenced them, then put them into Windows Movie Maker with the audio file.

The Moon Turns Over and Over – Music and Vocals by Michael Leon

Mike and I have long shared a love of Hank Williams and old country music. He is a professor of history, an Egyptologist (yeah, he can read hieroglyphs), and a composer, as well as a sound designer for theatre—in which capacity he works with director Emma Tibaldo. Mike and Emma are lucky enough to be married to one another.

About John MacKenzie

I'll mumble for ya. Poetry, plus most things quantifiable: science, neuroscience, memory, epistemology, baseball. And so on.

    I do love this poem.

    What would be the odds of getting the chords to the lovely tune?
