In Reply to: Liar's Moon reprised posted by ESC on August 25, 2002

: : Thought I'd post this topic up again since we seen to be getting flooded with unasked-for information - well-meaning, I am sure, but not desperately appropriate.

: : I also found the page in Japanese that ESC referred to, but somewhere in its html, the following line of English verse is written:-

: : "A lover's moon soars clear and bright, guiding true love throught(through the? throughout? through t'?) night.
: : But a liar's moon lurks misty and gray, scheming to drive true love away."

: : I have no idea if this is a regional saying from somewhere in the English-speaking world, or a line of published verse, but I thought it was worth posting in case it can be tracked down.

: Yes, that's the page I saw. I've found a lot of moon name pages. But no "liar's moon" so far.

I bet it's a Hollywood invention. Who else would be so cynical about love?
