I ran home [from Cloud's Rest to Yosemite Valley] in the moonlight, with long, firm strides; for the sun-love made me strong. Down through the junipers down through the firs; now in jet-shadows, now in white light; over sandy moraines and bare, clanking rock; past the huge ghost of South Dome, rising weird through the firs past glorious Nevada past the groves of Illilouette through the pines of the valley; frost-crystals flashing all the sky beneath, as star-crystals on all the sky above. All of this mountain-bread for one day!
Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me, Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee; Sounds of the rude world heard in the day, Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd away.stephen foster
Light-leaved acacias, by the door, Stood up in balmy air, Clusters of blossomed moonlight bore, And breathed a perfume rare.George MacDonald

There may be trouble ahead But while there's moonlight and music and love and romance Let's face the music and dance
Slow tyranny of moonlight, moonlight loved And changed.(Harold) Hart Crane
In this decayed hole among the mountains In the faint moonlight, the grass is singing Over the tumbled graves.

Oh, softest is the cheek's love-rayWhen seen by moonlight hoursletitia elizabeth landon
Music is the moonlight in the gloomy night of life.jean paul
All these relics gave... Thornfield Hall the aspect of a home of the past: a shrine to memory. I liked the hush, the gloom, the quaintness of these retreats in the day; but I by no means coveted a night's repose on one of those wide and heavy beds: shut in, some of them, with doors of oak; shaded, others, with wrought old-English hangings crusted with thick work, portraying effigies of strange flowers, and stranger birds, and strangest human beings, all which would have looked strange, indeed, by the pallid gleam of moonlight.charlotte brontë
The cypress stood up like a church That night we felt our love would hold, And saintly moonlight seemed to search And wash the whole world clean as gold; The olives crystallized the vales' Broad slopes until the hills grew strong: The fireflies and the nightingales Throbbed each to either, flame and song. The nightingales, the nightingales.
Sing again, with your dear voice revealing A tone Of some world far from ours, Where music and moonlight and feeling Are one.Percy Bysshe Shelley
He who would see old Hoghton right must view it by the pale moonlight.william hazlitt
Last night the nightingale woke me, Last night, when all was still. It sang in the golden moonlight, From out the woodland hill.
What beck'ning ghost along the moonlight shade Invites my steps, and points to yonder glade?Alexander Pope
I know that as night and shadows are good for flowers, and moonlight and dews are better than a continual sun, so is Christ's absence of special use, and that it hath some nourishing virtue in it, and giveth sap to humility, and putteth an edge on hunger, and furnisheth a fair field for faith to put forth itself.
O, it is pleasant, with a heart at ease, Just after sunset, or by moonlight skies, To make the shifting clouds be what you please, Or let the easily persuaded eyes Own each quaint likeness issuing from the mould Of a friend's fancy.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!) Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace, And saw, within the moonlight in his room, Making it rich, and like a lily in bloom, An Angel writing in a book of gold …
[Abortion is] the dirty work of our field. The sad truth is that the people who moonlight at the clinics are grade-B doctors. They're not the cream of the crop.
It's time to turn back time, follow the pale moonlight. Fly to a dream, far across the sea, all the burdens gone, open the chest once more.
