Song To The Moon - A Best Seller - But Why?

I have many a time wondered why this work is a best seller. I know it's a beautiful moon, but there are many beautiful moon photographs, so what is it about this one?

Perhaps it is the image and I am a harsh critique of my own work, on the other hand maybe it's the title and the work.

I called it "song to the moon" after a very famous a beloved operatic aria by the same name. It really makes me wonder about the importance of titles in artworks. I had no intent to make people fall in love with the work and yet they did. In truth I named it after the aria because it is in my own musical repertoire and one I had always loved, so here is the image and the lyrics. Yes, they are in English for my followers :)

Silver moon upon the deep dark sky,

Through the vast night pierce your rays.

This sleeping world you wander by,

Smiling on men's homes and ways.

Oh moon ere past you glide, tell me,

Tell me, oh where does my loved one bide?

Oh moon ere past you glide, tell me

Tell me, oh where does my loved one bide?

Tell him, oh tell him, my silver moon,

Mine are the arms that shall hold him,

That between waking and sleeping he may

Think of the love that enfolds him,

May between waking and sleeping

Think of the love that enfolds him.

Light his path far away, light his path,

Tell him, oh tell him who does for him stay!

Human soul, should it dream of me, Let my memory wakened be.

Moon, moon, oh do not wane, do not wane,

Moon, oh moon, do not wane!

Immortal Swan

I have always adored swans, in fact I love all animals and birds, but swans have a beauty that to me brings out an almost creative instinct to seek out their very beauty within and create a pictorial story of what I feel.

This swan lays blissfully half awake and half asleep as if his life will go on for eternity. The sun warms his feathers where it shines and the shadows are cool blues stroked with other hues to impart the preciousness of life - life of everything that lives.

Bonnie Muir Featured Artist

Art Prints


Photography has been a part of my life since I received my first camera at about age 10. As with everyone else, the first images were of family and pets. As I grew older and began to see the world with more knowledgeable eyes my subject matter became more diversified. As time progressed and I was able to obtain better cameras, my images improved.

I no longer use film, or work in the darkroom with foul smelling chemicals. Digital cameras and computers make photography so much more immediate. I am still learning and changing techniques. I will present my best images here.
