“Fly me to the moon.
Let me [ride] among the stars.
Let me see what [weathers’ like]
On Jupiter and Mars.
In other words….”
“Fill my heart with song,
Let me sing for ever More”

So may be from heavenly sights,
On mountain-views of celestial nights.
Just a glance from a garden too,
might lift a heart with an inspired tune.

Play on “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra

(Nice photo.)
