It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
GEORGE:  What is it you want, Mary?  What do you want? You want the moon?  Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea.  I'll give you the moon, Mary.

MARY:  I'll take it.  Then what?

GEORGE:  Well, then you can swallow it and it'll all dissolve, see... and the moonbeams would shoot out your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair.  Am I talking too much?

by Jim Harrison
The moon comes up.
The moon goes down.
This is to inform you
that I didn't die young.
Age swept past me
but I caught up.
Spring has begun here and each day
brings new birds up from Mexico.
Yesterday I got a call from the outside
world but I said no in thunder.
I was a dog on a short chain
and now there's no chain.

although tis not the season, this poem sends shivers through my body.  i openly admit my slight obsession with Jim Harrison.
