|“Even a man who’s pure at heart
and says his prayers by night
becomes a wolf when the wolf-bane blooms
and the moon is shining bright.”
Can you feel it?

Notes: “Full Moon ‘disturbs a good night’s sleep’.” The lunar cycle seems to influence human sleep, even when one does not ‘see’ the Moon and is not aware of the actual moon phase.” A full moon can disturb a good night’s sleep, scientists believe. Researchers found evidence of a “lunar influence” in a study of 33 volunteers sleeping in tightly controlled laboratory conditions. Reportedly, “there is a such a strong cultural story around the full moon that it would not be surprising if it has an effect. It’s one of these folk things that you would suspect has a germ of truth. It’s up to science now to find out what’s the cause of why we might sleep differently when there’s a full Moon.”
