Moonlight Songs

There is something magical about moonlight on the water. I can’t help thinking of “Moonlight Serenade” by Glenn Miller, which seems made for such a scene. There is something smooth, and shiny, and silvery about both the scene and the song that hearken back to the past, call out from the future, and create a beautiful present. “Moonlight Serenade’s” lyrics were written by Mitchell Parish, who actually was the guest conductor of an orchestra in a town I used to live near on several occasions. He was also the man who tried to convince Glenn Miller not take that plane that fateful day because the snow and the fog were too thick. Unfortunately, he was terribly, painfully right. However, even though Glenn had passed, the music played and continues to play on, and the moon rises and the water continues to lap the shore, and there is comfort and beauty in such continuity.
