Spooning Under the Moon

Do you know the meaning of the old fashioned word "spooning"?

It simply means to cuddle and kiss.

What better place to share this affection than under the light of a silvery moon!





Here are some closeup views of this series of vintage postcards.

PFB Publishers, Series 6809, Circa 1908-1909







By the Light of the Silvery Moon
Song published in 1909. The music was written by Gus Edwards, and the lyrics by Edward Madden

Place park, scene dark, silvery moon is shining through the trees;
Cast two, me, you, sound of kisses floating on the breeze.
Act one, begun. Dialogue, "Where would you like to spoon?"
My cue, with you, underneath the silvery moon.
By the light of the silvery moon,
I want to spoon, to my honey I'll croon love's tune,
Honeymoon keep a-shining in June,
Your silvery beams will bring love dreams, we'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.
Act two, scene new, roses blooming all around the place;
Cast three, you, me, Preacher with a solemn looking face.
Choir sings, bell rings, Preacher: "You are wed for evermore."
Act two, all through, every night the same encore.
By the light, (By the light, By the light),
Of the silvery moon, (The silvery moon).
I want to spoon, (Want to spoon, Want to spoon)
To my honey I'll croon love's tune.
Honeymoon, (Honeymoon, Honeymoon),
Keep a-shining in June. (Keep a-shining in June)
Your silvery beams will bring love dreams,
We'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.
Your silvery beams will bring love dreams,
We'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon. (The silvery moon).

Hi Debra!

Oh I just love this post and the images of the charming vintage valentine's! To tell you the truth, I wasn't really aware of the term "spooning" {though I did hear of it}, until this post! lol Thanks for the clarification of that old-fashioned, but cute term. :) Thank you also for your kind comment and visit to my page - it's greatly appreciated. Take care and enjoy your weekend.

What a lovely and romantic vintage card collection this is. Things were much simpler and sweet back in the "olden" days. :-) Visiting from A Holiday Haven.
