Moon's magic glow and good books

Folklore, stories and songs often use the moon as a metaphor, lesson or just a description: a pale moon rises, as dark as the moonless night, beneath a crescent moon, howling at the moon, witches and the moon, man in the moon, "Blue Moon," "Paper Moon," "Everyone's Gone to the Moon" and "Moon over Bourbon Street."
