      ~~~Night 10, Hunter's Moon tonight is a full moon ( http://stardate.org/nightsky/moon ) ~~~

      Tonight is a glorious full moon, and so it is only suiting that today's poem includes the moon..

      "The moon shines bright
      Yet o'er its silver mirror
      A shade may pass.
      So our fair name
      In this world's murky courses
      May suffer autumn changes." Kato Kiyomasa (July 25, 1562 – August 2, 1611), Daimyo. Kato wrote this poem as a part of a formal invitation for tea sent out to Hori Kyutaro Hidemasa.
