about

This is a song lyric that Valley of the Moon protagonist Saxon keeps returning to throughout the novel. It represents the creative process which informs their search for a better life. She strums her ukulele, adding new verses along stops during their journey around Northern and Central California.

lyrics

Sweet as the wind-lute’s airy strains
Your gentle muse has learned to sing,
And California’s boundless plains
Prolong the soft notes echoing
I want to find that valley of the moon

Chorus: I want to find that valley of the moon
Show me Jesus, Buddha or Vishnu
Tell my mama the mountain, I’m coming soon
There’s no stopping till we’re through

The dusk of the greenhouse is luminous yet
With quivers of opal and tremors of gold;
For the sun is at rest, and the light from the west,
Like delicate wine that is mellow and old
I want to find that valley of the moon
