I'm a fool

I'm a fool for the moon,
can't keep myself
from rushing to the window.
I'm a patsy for wild geese flying,
stop and stare like it's the popemobile.
I'm a pushover for little glints of sun,
slips of children's songs, chocolate,
deep blue green, lichen.
What is it about lichen, anyway,
that gets me so?
Don't know. I'm a fool,
and I don't mind
being flat on my face a lot,
weak-kneed before the world
pretty much all the time.
And the greatest wonder of all,
most deeply bewildering?
The Glorious One,
on scabbed knees, the fool,
staring wildly at me.
