Halo Around the Moon

Tell me it's moonlight shining
through cirrus clouds. Say those clouds
are made of ice crystals that act
as prisms for the moonlight.

Explain how the moon must be
at a certain angle to the ice crystals
for this rare phenomenon
to occur.

You may quote the scientists all you like
but I know very well it happens only
when the Rainbow Leprechauns celebrate
someone finding the pot of gold.
