EDM #173 - Draw Something from Memory

It's odd how one's memory occasionally throws out bits of long-forgotten song or verse.

And hand in hand on the edge of the sand
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

I've always enjoyed that bit of nonsense. For those who can't quite remember, it's the last verse of The Owl and the Pussy-cat ... about the charming couple who went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat.

Edit: I darkened the sky and fiddled with the image in Photoshop to get the colors closer to the original. Close enough.
