: I was wondering if there was any special meaning to the phrase "A Sailor's Moon"? I saw it in a poem and couldn't discern it's meaning. Thx.

Eric Partridge's "Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English" has these:

sailor's blessing = a curse
sailor's champagne = beer
sailor's farewell = a parting curse
sailor's friend = the moon
sailor's weather = "a fair wind and just enough of it"
